Future Meetings

June – Jeff gave a brief update about the website. We need an author to post the bargains for everyone. These kinds of bargains tend to last only a few days. Jeff would like to demo the website at the next general meeting.

Gordon Bell of Prosoft Engineering is coming from California to Colorado Springs to present the latest products for Macs at the June 6th General Meeting. The program will begin at 6:30 to 7:30. We’ll have a break then people will be able to purchase discounted Prosoft items followed by our door prise drawing. We will take him to dinner after the meeting.

July: Adrian Kaiser will demo the voice recognition software that comes with your Apple devices including the difference Siri makes. Voice recognition includes audio note taking apps, dictating email messages, and voice memos on our phones that can be shared in emails or messages. LD will give a video on Dragon Dictate.

August – Will be our annual SMMUG networking pizza party and possible an informal swap meet. Hardware items only, no software. Members can bring what they have and if it doesn’t get taken they will be required to take it as they leave.

September – A suggestion for Jeff and Mark Pimentel to cover iPhone vs. iPod touch, with a mention of the ipad Mini.

Door Prizes: Prosoft will donate some of their product and Kit will fill in with additional items including an iPod Shuffle for members at the end of the meeting.

Senior Center. The center has been having trouble with various parts coming up missing. They have shown Kit where the projector is but their man from the center will do the set up. Since he will hook up the system for us, we will need to meet a bit early, before the meeting. Gordon Bell will have his Keynote presentation on his laptop.

Website: The website is backed up by Ralph and Rich Voelker regularly so is no worry. We need to delete the old backups in the future. How many refer to the website regularly?

SIG: Sig will use whatever room is available to them for their meetings in the coming months. The meetings are well attended and are finding that time is running out before all the questions and answers can be covered.

SIG may take a break in August.
