February Meeting - February 10th, 2017.
The Q&A session will start at 7:00 and run to 7:30 PM.

LIMac February Meeting


February in the northeast can bring the worst of winter's fury and it would be ideal if there were some magic app to tell us what to expect, but forecasting the weather is still not an exact science. There are, however, some apps that may help. This month's presentation by our own president, Bill Medlow, will deal with weather apps, focusing on forecasting snow events. Bill says he remembers trying to get a handle on how much snow is coming and how to prepare for it. "It may be as easy as clearing the driveway," he says, or "picking someone up at the airport, planning a trip in or out of town. It might be for next week, three days from now or tomorrow." Bill goes on to say, that over the past two years he has taken note of new apps that have provided better information. Bill will skip among a few different weather apps (featuring AccuWeather, WeatherBug, NOAA Radar Oro, SnowForecast and Snow Watcher) that apply locally and at distant locations. They give varying types of information in different ways.

Our February meeting is always subject to the weather but as it stands now, it seems that it will fall victim to global warming, weather you believe in it or not.

As always, our meeting will begin with our "crowd sourced" Q&A session, moderated by Scott. Following the main presentation will be important announcements and, closing the general meeting, our monthly raffle.

Your first meeting is FREE. Annual individual membership is $36.00, which covers all immediate members of your family & gives you access to our monthly electronic newsletter and member-only bulletin board and valuable discounts only available to Macintosh User Group members. Membership applications are available at the check-in desk.

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.
