Learning in 2015

Hi everyone,

2015 is here already! And I wanted to share with you all a great resource - Geeks on Tour. Jim and Chris are travelling around the US and teach classes and make videos about technology as they go. Their focus is travel technology with loads of tutorials on tablets and smartphones (not all of them are free though).

I came across them while searching for information and help with moving all my photos out of iPhoto (Apple will be dropping iPhoto in 2015 and everything will move to 'Photos' - the same as on iPad). This is the video I used and it was really very helpful. Plus it prompted me to finally back up all 4000+ photos in iPhoto to an external hard drive!

So, make a cuppa, and check out their website, in particular their video tutorial page. You can also find them on YouTube and Facebook.

In the next couple of days I'll have some news for you all, so keep an eye out in your inbox!

Just a reminder that our final class for 2014 is on this Saturday, 10 am to 12 noon. For those who cannot make it, I will post a complete "how to" on the Christmas letter after the class.

Here is a link to the incomplete how to for those who are interested.

Thank you all for your support and enthusiasm this year. I'll be posting about classes for next year in early 2015 so keep an eye on your inbox!

Mac Users news

Plenty of news for you all!

The Mac Beginners class starts again tomorrow at 10 am at the Neighbourhood Centre. The Club has found a new tutor so it's full steam ahead.

Final two classes for our group will be on: Saturday 1 November and Saturday 6 December. As we discussed last time, we will put together a Christmas letter and/or card at the November class and who knows what we will do for the December class!

I'm sure there will be some questions about the new OSX for Mac, Yosemite. I ran the update today and so far so good! I'll have some details at the next class about and also some helpful info about Mavericks and updating iPhoto and iMovie. I have had some problems with this, and would like to share how to fix it!'s a really wonderful article at the joys of technology for all ages:
