Mac Classes - April '12

Happy late April Fools Day! I hope you didn't get fooled too bad... ;-)

I have a crazy schedule this month, so I'm going to squeeze the Saturday classes into the next two weekends, then have a break until the Overview class at the end of the month:

 On Saturday, April 7th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will once again offer a class on Email & Address Book on your Mac. This class will cover all the intricacies of email and contact-management.

Ever wonder what the Bcc field is for, or how to make an email that looks colorful and professional instead of simple black-on-white text? Have you been frustrated by the complexity of creating Groups in your Address Book, and then struggled to send a message to a large group without having the message fail? This class will cover all that and more... Cost is $20, and it will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall. No sign-up necessary; it's open to drop-ins, so come if you can!

 Then, on Saturday, April 14th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will again present an in-depth overview of the iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch. In the last several months, the iPhone 4S has been released (now available on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint), a major update to the operating system has come out ("iOS 5") with tons of great new features, and of course the 'new' iPad has just arrived as well.

Whether you've had one of these game-changers for years, are just now jumping on the "iOS" bandwagon with a new iPhone/iPad, or it's simply time for you to find out what the fuss is all about, this class will teach you everything you need to know about these amazing devices. Again, cost for this class is $20, and it will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall. Sign-up is not necessary, drop-ins are welcome!


 The regular FREE "Overview of Mac OS X" class takes place on the last Wednesday of every month, and this month that means it happens on Wednesday, April 25th from 5-7 p.m. These overview classes are held in the computer lab at the Ridgway Library. There are only eight seats available, and the Library has asked that I handle the sign ups, so give me a call at 970-417-8434 (or drop me an email) if you'd like to attend. (Be aware that first-timers take priority over anyone who has taken the class before, but there are often openings for repeaters).

There are six Macs in the computer lab, so only two of the eight attendees need their own laptops. This class is beginner-oriented, but we cover some different things every month; repeat attendees are encouraged (when there's room)!

Take care everyone, and have a great month!!

And as always, let me know if there's something else you'd like me to consider covering in the Saturday sessions.
