2/23/16 Meeting


Health and Taxes

Tuesday, February 23: 6:00-6:30 p.m Q&A / 6:30-8:30 p.m. Regular Meeting


It’s that time of year again…the time that some look forward to and others dread. It’s income tax season! Since many of us use different methods to complete our income tax returns we thought it would be interesting to have a round table discussion regarding your favorite methods and why you’ve chosen the method you use.

New Year’s resolutions are often full of promises to make better choices regarding our health in the new year. Apple makes it easy to track a few bits of health data just by carrying their cell phones, but there are other options out there including devices that attach to your wrist from FitBit, Samsung and Motorola (as well as the Apple Watch, of course). We’ll discuss some of the options available, see what’s being used within the group and the different features these devices offer.

We hope to see you there!

Buyer’s Guide

Using Apple TV at Meetings

Last meeting we started using an Apple TV to enhance our meetings with a more interactive, multimedia format. Through the Apple TV, members are able to cast (remotely display) the screen on their device to our projector. If a member’s device is malfunctioning we can project the problem on the screen so that other members can see how we diagnose and fix the problem. If you want to share an application or software on your device we can display that on the projector also.

Crowdsourcing the Buyer’s Guide

It’s that time of year again! As it gets closer to Christmas we see a number of special offers and incentives for products we would like to give as gifts or buy for ourselves. Every year we try to help you make informed decisions when it comes to making purchases of computers and mobile devices. If you’re considering making such a purchase then bring all of your questions to the meeting with you. Here are a few you should be thinking about:

1. Is this the right time to purchase a new computer or tablet?
2. Is this the right time to upgrade my phone?
3. How much memory do I need in a new device?
4. What features should I be looking for in a new device?
5. What do you want to use your new device for?

By discussing these decisions as a group, we hope to help you arrive at the right decision for you!

We hope to see you there!

March 2013 Meeting Minutes


UAUG Meeting
March 26, 2013

The first order of business at tonight’s meeting, was a discussion of meeting times and place. Due to staffing issues, Dunham Library is requiring us to vacate the building at 8 p.m. Peter queried members as to their preferences. Since we have already paid for the use of the Community Room, should we continue meeting at Dunham, start at 6 p.m. and end at 8, or investigate meeting at the New Hartford Library if the dates are available? It was decided to continue at Dunham at the earlier time.

He next explained our decision to institute in May a new policy of issuing a “Member Prize” ticket to all UAUG members at the Christmas Party regardless of their attendance at this event. This prize will be determined at a later date and have a minimum value of $500. Additional tickets would be issued for attending meetings, making a presentation, and/or sponsoring a new member.

Al Fasoldt will be making a presentation at the April 23rd meeting. Members should check their email in case there needs to be a change with the new time format.

Dan then continued with last month’s topic: iPhoto and Photo Stream. He began by asking what questions/concerns members have with iPhotoiphoto_icon and distributed a handout entitled “More with iPhoto – Agenda. He then went on to explain that iPhoto 11 is the current version we use. Things we do with it include import, organize, edit, print. Dan then shared a brief video. He reiterated that PhotoStream instantly downloads on all your devices on iCloud.He explained how it works with no syncing, email attachments or file transfers.

If you open iPhoto and hold option key you will get a window asking which library you would like to use. Steps to get started: Connect camera or memory card, drag photos into iPhoto, choose File-Import to Library. If you take a picture with your iPhone or pad, turn on Location Services so the device will automatically know where you took the pic. Dan then explained each of the icons at the bottom of the iPhoto screen. He continued to build a new library and drag pictures from Photo Stream. He selected various photos and copied them to this library and created an event. He showed how to use faces to identify and find photos that a particular person is in.

Photostream-Icon-aPlaces- The window shows where a photo was taken and what type of device it was taken with. You can set up key words and set up a shortcut to use it. Keywords, events, faces, places are ways to identify your libraries. Dan mentioned that you need to decide how you want to use PhotoStream and how it will impact the storage on your device.

Dan went through the preferences for iPhoto including General, Appearance, Sharing PhotoStream, Accounts, and Advanced. He suggested using mail instead of iphoto for sending someone a picture.

Peter cautioned to never import one iPhoto Library into another iPhoto Library. Options: buy Aperture which has the ability to merge two iPhoto libraries, or iPhoto Manager which also has a merge feature, or create a folder on the desktop to export your photos temporarily so you can import them into the iPhoto library where you are consolidating your photos. You will lose some meta data, but all of your photos will be in one place. Dan demonstrated this last method.

If you are updating to a new version of iPhoto, back up first. If you are using Faces, etc. back up also.
