The meetings focus on Apple/Mac computers, iPads,& iPhones.  Each meeting includes a discussion of recent Apple/Mac announcements and releases; a roundtable discussion of applications, general rumors, issues, and problems members may be having; and a few formal topics. 

The next meeting is scheduled for June 26.  The discussion topic at the meeting will be Cyber Security.  What we need to know about it and what processes should be put in place to address potential issues and problems.

The discussion topics for the following two months: 

The July 23 meeting will include a discussion of TV Alternatives to the large providers (e.g. XFINITY).  Pros, cons, and considerations.  The group has had this discussion a few times and it is always very lively and informative.

The August 27 meeting will be on Home Automation.  There are many opportunities to automate the home   (e.g. security cameras, thermostats, lights, watering systems) via smart phones.  There are a plethora of “solutions” and that is what becomes a challenge.  The group will discuss this area and focus on identifying potential next steps one might take.

Meetings are held in the conference room at the CC County Supervisor office at 3338 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette, on the fourth Monday of each month at 10:00 AM to noon. The location is the fire station building across the street from El Charro restaurant.  Enter left side door at top of steps.  Novices and advanced users are welcomed.  Come and be a part of the group.
