September Meeting - MacVoices Live! 

MacVoices September Meeting

Chuck Joiner, host of the MacVoices internet show, and panel members Jeff Gamet and David Ginsburg will be at our September 10th meeting. The meeting will be an actual MacVoices Live! broadcast, recorded for release at a later date.

The panel will discuss what’s ahead for the Mac with Apple silicon, and future developments for the new chip. (“Where is the ‘M-series’ going?” “What new hardware can we expect with the new chip?” “What effects will it have on software design?” “Are legacy hardware products doomed?”) In addition, if time permits, Chuck, Jeff, and David will opine on the future of MUGs and what we, as LIMac members can contribute to these valuable resources for Apple computer and device users.

As we usually do, we’ll begin the meeting promptly at 7:00 with a Q&A session hosted by Bradley (which will end at 7:30) and follow with announcements and the raffle. Following the raffle the show will be Chuck Joiner’s to run.

Since the meeting will be recorded there are some important things that we must do. First, as usual, you must sign in to Zoom with your real name or you will not be admitted to the meeting. When you are admitted, please mute your audio. There will be time during or at the end of the meeting to comment or ask questions. Second, if you do not wish to be on camera for the video recording, you must not only mute your audio, but also turn off your video. (You will still be on the call, but will disappear from the video.)

You’re Invited to the MacBasics SIG
In order to meet the needs of a wider range of members and not put off those with more than beginning skills, we’ve changed not only the name from Beginner SIG, but also the focus of our SIG. We will still cover applications like AppleWorks and simple procedures like setting up your first Mac, file systems and using utilities, but we’ve also matured, as much of Apple’s software and hardware has. So come on down. We'll be where we’ve always been, doing what we’ve always done, but with a new slant and a new name. The MacBasics SIG is led by Geoff Broadhurst and Rick Matteson. The SIG meeting is broken into two sessions. The first is from 7:00 to 7:30PM, during which we will have our own basic level question and answer session. We’ll break for the featured presentation and raffle and come back for the main portion of our SIG meeting from 8:30 to 10 o’clock. Of course before our MacBasics main demonstration we'll have our own novice Q&A session across the hall, while Bradley's dealing with the more complicated problems in the main room.

As always come with questions. The MacBasics SIG is not just for beginners, but we do discuss aspects of the Mac that may sometimes be overlooked. There will be a MacBasics SIG meeting this month. The topic has not been announced.


The App SIG, is the latest SIG from LIMac. It's a peer-to-peer group where members share their knowledge and experience with the
operating system iOS 7 and their favorite apps for their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

While the AppleTV does run iOS, it doesn't run
user apps. Nevertheless, it can play an important role in the mobile OS realm with streaming video and photos and screen mirroring.
Lets help each other here. There will be no App SIG meeting this month.
