Jun 23rd, 2017 by sriggins

Bob is the author of more than 80 books including macOS Sierra For Dummies, iPhone For Dummies, and iPad For Dummies, as well as a technology columnist for The Houston Chronicle and The Mac Observer.

Bob will be sharing his latest book, “Working Smarter for Mac Users,” which he says can help you in areas such as:

  • If you’re having trouble getting stuff done in a timely fashion, Working Smarter for Mac Users is filled with tips and techniques guaranteed to help.
  • If you spend too much time “down the rabbit hole” (i.e. doing something other than what you’re supposed to be doing) watching cat videos or buying stuff you don’t need on Amazon.com, you’ll find myriad proven tricks and techniques for avoiding distractions in Working Smarter for Mac Users.
  • If something you do on your Mac takes longer than you think it should, Working Smarter for Mac Users includes dozens of tips to save you time every time you use your Mac.
  • If you always believed your computer was supposed to make things easier, but don’t feel that’s the case, Working Smarter for Mac Users is just the ticket.

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.

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.
