Publisher & Printer
Recently Adam Engst from TidBITS published an excellent article entitled “Think Like a Publisher” that we believe all Apple User Group Leaders should read.
The personal computer — and the dynamic duo of the Macintosh and LaserWriter in particular — revolutionized print publishing by making it easy to whip up a brochure, flyer, or newsletter. The Internet extended our individual publishing capabilities even further, enabling anyone to send bulk email, start a blog, or set up a Web site.
And while anyone can now publish something, not everyone gets it right! However, Adam’s advice makes it easy for everyone to start thinking like a professional publisher! Continue reading »
DJTECH Cube 50 Portable Rechargeable Speaker with Amplifier
Over the years I’ve had a number of Australian Apple User Groups ask me for suggestions on a suitable portable public address system for use at their meetings. Unfortunately there weren’t many selections available at a reasonable price. There were plenty that I had investigated myself, but most started around the $1,000 mark and sky rocketed from there. Obviously, these are out of reach of most Apple User Groups.
Well, now I’ve found one for under $300… and until November 30, 2012, for this price you can add a couple of useful extras for a similar price! Continue reading »

Welcome to this Sampler Edition of the AppleUsers Spotlight, which we have created especially for inclusion on the “Spotlight on FOSS
