Steve Jobs, 1955-2011


We learned of Steve Jobs’ death just as we were beginning our October 5th MUG ONE meeting.

Steve changed all of our lives. Without him, there would be no MUG ONE.

We mourn his passing and celebrate his achievements.

Thanks for everything, Steve. We’ll miss you.

November 3: iLife ’11 and Elections

Learn about iLife ’11 at the November meeting of MUG ONE, the Macintosh User Group of Oneonta, NY on Wednesday, November 3 at 7:30 p.m. in Room 103 Golisano Hall on the Hartwick College campus in Oneonta, NY.

We’ll start the meeting with the annual election of MUG ONE officers. Then Elsa Travisano will introduce us to Apple’s brand new iLife ’11 suite, released on October 20. iLife ’11 features major upgrades to iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand, and includes iDVD and iWeb. This latest version of iLife requires Mac OS 10.6.3 or greater, an Intel processor, 1 GB of RAM and 5 GB hard drive space, perhaps providing the motivation for OS 10.4 and 10.5 hold-outs with the necessary hardware to upgrade to the current operating system.

If time permits Elsa will also offer a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, Apple’s just-announced operating system that is due to arrive in summer of 2011. Elsa is an Apple Certified Support Professional and a member of the Apple Consultants Network.

The meeting will begin with a question and answer session and annual election of officers and end with a door prize drawing for current members and refreshments for all. The MUG ONE lending library will be available for members. All MUG ONE meetings are free of charge and everyone is welcome. For more information, email us at info@mugone.com
