17-September-2014 Main Meeting

Meeting Summary…

After a rocky and late start due to some technical difficulties which were eventually resolved with suggestions from Ricky Rodriguez, troubleshooting by Kenzie Togami and Ed Adams providing an alternate projector, Jim Tinsley [Past President] presented an overview and real-time demonstration on the big screen of the long-rumored Members-only Zone [MoZ] which was made accessible to SBAUG Members earlier in the week.  The MoZ in the organization’s ‘extra-spicey’ WordPress-based website offers Forums, [Hardware and Software related], Classified Ads and Special Offers exclusively for SBAUG Members.   Questions and Answers about the MoZ features, user-interface and navigation to the different areas were interspersed throughout the presentation.  Following the presentation was a discussion of the new iPhones and iOS 8 led by Ed Adams.The finale was the ever popular ‘Members-Only’ drawing for a $100 GiftCard redeemable at Apple’s Online or Retail Stores, and the lucky winner was… Ron Fisk.
