The topic is Mountain Lion presented by Tracy H.
Starts at 7pm and goes till 8:45pm at the California Museum of Photography on Main at University. Free to all. Learn more about the newest Mac OS. We also have a question and answer period so bring your questions.
Apple just released an important update which I highly recommend all users to run.
As soon as I ran Software update, I got a prompt that said … was detected and successfully removed.
Those cooties are now out there folks. We are no longer immune to the malware that are out there.
As more and more computer users make the switch to Macs, we’re as expected becoming more desirable targets for malware.
It’s a good idea to stay informed to see how this trojan works.
I guess there’s been a decision on the change venue where MUGSIE will meet.
Starting in March, our group will meet at the California Museum of Photography, specifically the 3rd floor on the 1st Thursday of every month.
The California Museum of Photography is located in the downtown Riverside pedestrian mall.
3824 Main St, Riverside, CA 92501
Hello Mugsie members.
The California Museum of Photography has graciously agreed to host our meetings. We had previously met there once before.
But before we can do so, we need a vote from active members.
If you’re lucky enough to have won an Apple TV like member Dennis Taylor, then you can easily time shift your tv watching.
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday Dec 13. Please note this is the 2nd Tuesday of this month.
An Apple TV.
It will be the AppleTV–the 2nd generation model. As usual, only members will be allowed to participate in the raffle.
Please try and attend this meeting.
The club does not have a president and a vice-president. For it to continue, someone needs to step up.
See you all at 7pm on the 13th at the Janet Goeske Center.
Looks like someone has been doing some lobbying in Riverside for Apple to open a store here.
The latest OS 10.7 marks a big change in how Apple is selling software.
From this point on, Apple will not be shipping discs. If you want to buy Apple software, you will have to have Snow Leopard (10.6) which will give you access to the App store.
What that means is if you haven’t already upgraded to 10.6, you may find you’ll be left behind.
Then there are folks like me who have an older MacPro which won’t run Lion. What do I do? Those are the realities of our computing age. We just need to stay abreast of these developments.
Best way is to subscribe to a Mac centric publication, folks. That way, when your Mac is too old to be supported, you can make some good informed decisions.
Since Lion is a download, many Mac users have been concerned that they won’t have a bootable install disc. If you’ve used computers a while you know that that’s a scary thought, not having a way to boot up if there is a disaster like a hard drive failure.
Here’s a link to how to make a bootable Lion discs. Let me know if it works.
