Meetings

January 13, 2014, 7:00 PM

It’s a brand new year and, with it, comes brand new stuff. Of course, the new MacPro is now shipping and some LAPUG users may have already received theirs. Within hours of it going on sale in late December, shipping dates were showing delivery in February so it may be some time before we get some real hands-on experience with it. Nevertheless, we’ll discuss what it offers and if it’s good time to get one.

The 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is the week right before our meeting and since Ben, Phil and perhaps a few other LAPUG members will be attending, we’ll have a wrap-up of new stuff that’s relevant to iOS and OSX users. There’s a whole area of the expo floor dedicated to iOS so we expect a lot of new products to be announced and shown. We’ll bring the show to you!

And, of course, we'll go over some other current events in the OS X world as well as review some cool Mac & iOS apps and leave some time for Q&A.


December 9, 2013

The dust is settling with OS X Mavericks and new things are upon us. One of those things is a whole new set of iWork applications. We’ll go over the apps along with the changes they bring. We’ll also show you how to get so much more out of templates with iWork apps that can be used with both OS X and iOS versions of iWork. iWork apps on OS X and iOS also share their data over iCloud and we’ll go over how that works as well as reviewing other apps that use cloud syncing as well.

And, of course, we'll go over some other current events in the OS X world as well as review some cool Mac & iOS apps and leave some time for Q&A.
