iPad in Education: College Students – Tarah Frost

In this class we'll discuss various services, apps and accessories for enhancing organization and education for college students.

Your Digital Life: Ask Richard! - Richard Applebaum

The attendees determine the discussion in this open format venue. Topics could include: the importance and storing of different strong passwords for each login and account; a strategy for safe online purchases; physical security for computer and other devices; securing your home wireless (WiFi) network; how to easily (for free) protect your Mac (and the people you exchange email, photos, and other items with) from viruses and other malware; easily creating reliable and robust backups that can even handle disasters (such as flood, fire, theft, or other loss); creating separate accounts for each user on your computer; email safety issues; keeping the computer, iPhone/iPad, and applications/apps updated and patched; the importance of regularly syncing and backing up your iPhone/iPad with/iTunes, being able to have the same bookmarks on various browsers even on different computers and devices; and using the free TeamViewer application to get (or give) remote help.

Drop in to the Tech Café for casual Q&A, coffee, tea and light bites. Folks with general questions, little or no prior computer or iPad/iPhone experience can stop by for advice and one-on-one style help from other knowledgable members. Sorry, Triage services are not available at this location.

All services are included with a MacNexus membership ($40 annual per household). Find out more at (
