March 13th General Meeting: 2-Factor Authentication and how it protects you
Mar 9th, 2017 by jyamada

Apple is pushing its users very hard to upgrade to the latest security standards. They feel so strongly that something called 2-Factor Authentication can help protect its users that macOS 10.12 Sierra even includes a deceptively simple dialog box to switch the feature on for users.

We will explain in plain english how this protects you and show in a live demonstration why despite the caveats of inadvertently setting up this feature, it is still a good idea to consider upgrading your Apple ID account to 2-Factor Authentication.

Come join us at the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center (Ecotrust Center), 721 NW Ninth Avenue. Question and answer hour starts at 6:30pm, with the main discussion starting around 7:30 pm and ending at 9 pm.

If you find that you want to divest yourself of your old Apple hardware to make way for something new and shiny then you can bring up to 5 items to swap at the meeting.

February 13th General Meeting: Why We ❤️ Our Macs
Jan 28th, 2017 by jyamada

These days it seems like Apple’s children besides the Mac are getting all the attention. Fresh new Watches, iPhones, and iPads can be dazzling, but the Mac remains the flexible workhorse of the stable.

Come join us as we remind ourselves of neat things a Mac can do that other devices can’t (such as connecting directly to a scanner, one of which we will be raffling off that night) at the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center (Ecotrust Center), 721 NW Ninth Avenue. Question and answer hour starts at 6:30pm, with the main discussion starting around 7:30 pm and ending at 9 pm.

If you find that you want to divest yourself of your old Apple hardware to make way for something new and shiny then you can bring up to 5 items to swap at the meeting.

Happy birthday to the Macintosh!

Do you need help with your Macintosh computer or iPhone/iPad? Come to the Village Inn Restaurant, 1621 NE 10th, Portland today between 6:00pm – 7:30pm. PMUG volunteers meet here every other week to help with questions. Come early and have dinner!

 

Tuesday Clinic January 17
Jan 17th, 2017 by jdevore

Normally we would have today’s PMUG Clinic at the Simply-Mac store at 3205 SW Cedar Hills Blvd in Beaverton between 6:00p – 7:30p. The announcement is late today, because we have been trying – like the rest of the Portland area – to decide what the roads will be like tonight.

We had hoped it would be warmer by this evening. The rain coming in this afternoon most likely means icy streets. Even if it is not freezing rain, the remaining snow will get more slippery. Be safe!
