February 2013 Meeting

Our first meeting for the year had a great raffle prize – a Western Digital 2TB USB3 external hard drive – won by a new member, Karen.

Colin gave us a demo of Pandora Radio, a streaming Internet Radio Aggregator app for iOS devices that can manage music by genre and learns your musical tastes to filter suggested content. We also saw a live demo of screen sharing between Colin’s and Brian Cooper’s Mac notebooks, using Team Viewer. 

Resident ‘techxpert’ Ron told us how a large, conservative law firm that traditionally always used Microsoft PowerPoint for presentations, was persuaded to embrace Apple Keynote delivered on iPads, in preference to PowerPoint on Windows laptops, because of the more engaging quality of the presentations.
