How We Help Ourselves

Tuesday, May 28 • Q&A Session: 6-7pm • Presentation and Discussion: 7-8:15pm

DUNHAM PUBLIC LIBRARY, 76 MAIN ST., WHITESBORO, NY 13492

PLEASE NOTE: Dues are now due for the 2019-20 membership year.

Sometimes we're in a bind with a computer/device issue and there's just nobody we can turn to. Or maybe you're the person everyone looks to for advice and a problem with your equipment that you can't solve on your own. What do you do? There are a number of great sources available for immediate help with issues concerning our favorite Apple products. From Google searches and YouTube to the Apple Support Communities and discussion forums, these are great resources where you can search for others with similar issues and see how they (or others) solved these problems. We'll discuss these options and the best practices for getting the best results at our meeting on Tuesday.

Hope to see you all there!

Home Automation

Tuesday, April 23 • Q&A Session: 6-7pm • Presentation and Discussion: 7-8:15pm

DUNHAM PUBLIC LIBRARY, 76 MAIN ST., WHITESBORO, NY 13492

Please note: If you haven't paid your annual dues, they are...well...DUE for our 2019-2020 season.

Do you use your Mac, iPhone, or iPad to control your thermostat, or activate a security system, or ask your refrigerator what groceries you need to buy? Apple's HomeKit is software that enables you to control various aspects of your home remotely. The Home app on iOS and the homePod are examples of how Apple is allowing you to interact with the Internet of Things (IOT).

Ron Kopelman will start the discussion by telling how he talks to his thermostat, then he'll invite others to offer what they are doing or are interested in doing with home automation.

Hope to see you all there!

iOS Shortcuts App

Tuesday, March 26 • Q&A Session: 6-7pm • Round Table Discussion: 7-8:15pm

DUNHAM PUBLIC LIBRARY, 76 MAIN ST., WHITESBORO, NY 13492

Please note: DUES ARE NOW DUE for our 2019-2020 season

The Shortcuts app in iOS is a new tool that can help you turn tasks requiring several actions into shortcuts that can be executed by Siri. Dan and Peter will explain further what Shortcuts can do to simplify and multi-task for us. Think of it like Automator for the iPhone.

Hope to see you all there!
