    HOWDY! These are the unofficial 'minutes' of the meeting last night. Sorry in advance if I left anyone out but I'm using a new technique of posting it LIVE! so it might (read:will) contain discrepancies... The initial discussion on All Things Apple centered around Apple's record new profits, the upcoming release of YOSEMITE - Mac OS X 10.10 & iOS 8 and finally, the "secret" meeting rumored to be the official announcement of the new iPhone6!

    The closing section of the meeting was Sean's guided tour of OS X 10.10 code named YOSEMITE. Great Job of showing us all some of the new features & bell,whistles & whatnot of the Beta Test version of which Sean is a debugger.

    P.S. Next Month! Phil & Sean Show on 'HOW TO SET UP YOUR OWN DOMAIN'! don't miss it...

    Terry relates her discovery of the 'new' Microsoft at the Mall of Millennia. Looks susupiciously familiar.?.?... Mary's having problems syncing her contacts list with her computer - iphone - the cloud... Any advice?
    Sean has some suggestion Default account in Settings
    for Contacts - Calendar & Mail needs to be the primary account you use, ie: Yahoo,Gmail,etc...

    Tom says Sat July 12th his dotMac account stopped accepting log-in - repeatedly asking for password!!!
    Gary suggested Tom create a new user.
    Half the crowd here tonight has a dotMac-Me or iCloud account they use regularly, but Tom's the only one who's having a problem at the moment...

    A report that 30 Apple Cinema Display's for sale on Craigslist going cheaply... check it out! Free program to remember passwords - contact [masked]
    iTunes Radio ? does T-Mobile provide free sming or not? Does it only work on some iPhones?
    Sean suggests settings iTunes & App Store - is cellular

    & surrendering your phone to boot!

    I missed last month's meeting after saying I'd be there. Just too much going on and had dinner with my wife, then it was too late. I'll double my effort to be there! It is valuable to learn and contribute about all things Apple.
