Last month we took a look at Keynote Live and how your user group can integrate it into your meetings. In part two of this series we will take a look at collaboration for Keynote, which is a new beta feature added with the introduction of macOS Sierra and iOS 10. Collaboration is built into all the iWork apps, but in this article we will focus on Keynote.
The new collaboration tools are a great way for a multiple presenters to work on a project remotely and in real time. User groups leaders and presenters can work on a topic prior to a group meeting. Needed edits or updates can be made, or individuals can work on their slides for the project while another person is editing their slides. (more…)
On January 6, 2004, the Macintosh was a few days over 20 years old and Steve Jobs had exciting news: Apple had a new type of software, called GarageBand, and a new format for the iPod, an iPod Mini with a huge 4GB of storage. How would we ever fill all that space? With this month’s release of the newest version of GarageBand, it seems like a great time to remember its introduction, with John Mayer performing and Steve Jobs explaining the ways that it would open a world of possibilities.

Over close to 30 years, publishing 1,350 issues (and more than 7,000 individual blurbs), the InfoManager newsletter, User Group Network and UGNN have covered what mattered for Apple User Groups and their members. Remember the User Group Forum on eWorld? Fred was there. Macworld in 1987? Yep, he was part of that exciting show. This month brought news that Fred is retiring and he and Lynn will no longer be publishing InfoManager each week. Times change and we move ahead, but it is important to thank them for all the years of service to the community.
Thanks Fred and Lynn! You will be missed.
