SMUG Meeting May 9, 2017


To update, or not to update, that is a question that will be addressed at the Tuesday, May 9 meeting of the Sierra Macintosh Users Group (SMUG) that will begin at 7 p.m. in the assembly room of the Ebbetts Pass Fire District, 1037 Blagen Rd., Arnold, just off Highway 4.

Brian Thomas, Director of Innovation for the Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools, will describe when it is imperative to download the latest version of an application and when it is not critical, or advisable.  He will also introduce members to four incredibly useful iOS & macOS apps they may not have heard of?

As is his wont, Thomas will travel far beyond the basic topics to provide a variety of information to improve the user’s computer experience.

Questions about any Apple products and applications will be welcomed and encouraged.

SMUG meetings are designed for dues paying members but anyone is welcome to attend to see if they would like to join the group.  SMUG was founded in 1995 and is a non-profit organization run completely by volunteers. It meets the second Tuesday of the month, January through November.  Annual dues are $20 for an individual or couple payable at the first of the year.

The organization exists to keep Apple users abreast of the latest developments and to address the nagging questions that arise from time to time.  Its goal is to take the mystery out of computers and to enable members to take advantage of all the features their Mac products possess.
