The Walt Whitman Apple Store staffers were very excited and enthusiastic. LIMac members were looking forward to the opening of the new store. There was a raffle to be won, not to mention the first day only T-shirt.

The night before the Walt Whitman Apple Store (#54) opened (May 10, 2003), LIMac was fortunate to be visited by many of the store employees, who no doubt already had a full day getting the last minute stuff ready for the big opening day. If anyone is keeping track, the other LI Apple store in Roosevelf Field was #33 when it opened on July 20 of 2002 just a month after the flagship store in SoHo, NYC.

"Dr. Mac" Bob Levitus in November 2002. Mostly he talked about assorted Mac stuff and showed some home movies. He came all the way from Austin, Texas. He brought T-shirts and books for our raffle. He's written many books and his Mac OS X book was coming out. He would be going to the MacMania II cruise to Hawaii as part of Geek Cruises. The home iMovies included early 90's clips of his wife, Lisa and his kids Allison and Jacob.

Dino Thomas of OlympusDecember 2001: On short notice we lucked out and got Dava Marra from Apple to come and show us some cool Mac OS X stuff and also introduce the new Airport Base Station and the iPod with iTunes 2. The Image Capture off the digital camera and automatically scripted to build a web page got applause. Dave wowed the audience with his detailed demonstration of the font sheet in TextEdit and the international language support in Mac OS 10.1 His enthusiasm and humor made it a memorable presentation. No boring slide presentation this night! He brought both a iBook dual USB and a PowerBook G4 as well as a Power Mac G4 for every one to check out up close. Afterwards we had our year end party.

Dino Thomas of OlympusNovember 2001 and Olympus sent us Dino Thomas to show us their latest and greatest digital cameras and photo printers. He brought many cameras and both printers and had lots of samples to show us. We got a detailed presentation on all the technical advantages of Olympus products. He took some pictures and printed them out. Several of our members already have their cameras and were convinced to buy newer and better Olympus models.

October 2001 and Linden Harding, Epson's Evangelist came down to show us some printers and scanners. He explained at length the features that make their products so good and the differences between the Perfection and the Expression series scanners. He brought many printed samples as proof.

You can see him with (left to right) a opened Stylus Photo 1280 and then a Stylus Photo 2000P and then the Expression 1680 scanner. He even showed some of the various types of media you can print on. You can see on the blackboard, all the print samples.

Back in July 2001, Peter Thomas, StuffIt Product Manager from Aladdin Systems showed off the new Stuffit Deluxe to our members. One of the must have utilties for a connected Mac user, Stuffit is required to decode and decompress just about anything you might see from Macs, PCs and UNIX machines. The Deluxe package is what you must get to compress, encode and segment all these formats. He had a quantity of Aladdin products to sell too, but he only had time to go into detail on the company's best known utility.

Nikon Coolpix & CoolScanSeptember 1999 and Nikon's Michael Rubin came down and showed some work done with their market leading products, the Super CoolScan LS-2000 and the CoolPix 950. Is that Bradley shamelessly promoting the products? No, just that Mike had his hands full.

Dantz's Retrospect Rich Goon came down to show Dantz Retrospect and Retrospect Express back in July 1999. Hopefully you use either one to back up your Mac.

David says he's developed a thick skin about these concerns.
