Show Us Your Rig at the July Picnic!

June 13th, 2014 in ACAMUG

As part of the july Wi-Fi picnic festivities we’d like to a little guessing game, but we need your help. Here’s the scoop from Dennis:

rig This is how to play “Show Us Your Rig.”:

  • Take out your iPhone camera;
  • Aim it at your Mac-Apple device set up;
  • Make sure you have enough light;
  • Snap the best, most impressive view you can; Make sure your name does not appear in the photo; Attach it to your email as an “attachment”;
  • Send it to Dennis at ” piermattei@mac.com”; Also welcome are photos of your desktop’s dock;

Also welcome are photos of your desktop’s dock; In which case you are playing “Flash Your Dock” The individual who guesses the most Rigs and Docks wins . . . ???

Here are some samples of Rigs and Docks:

Before taking your picture PLEASE make sure you’ve removed little sticky notes that have, say, your bank login or other such info that’s not appropriate for public exposure.

OS X Beta Seed Program

April 23rd, 2014 in Apple,Updates

If you’ve ever wanted to experience the joy and frustration of testing pre-release versions of the Mac’s OS X operating system, you are in luck. Apple has opened up their OS X beta testing program to anyone who wants to join:

Join the OS X Beta Seed Program and help make OS X even better. Install the latest pre-release software, try it out, and submit your feedback.

You really don’t want to install pre-release OS versions on your day-to-day machines as it’s possible/probable you’ll bump into bugs that might risk your documents and it’s more or less impossible to revert to an older OS version once you start using a pre-release with your apps and critical data.

However, if you’ve got a spare external hard drive you can use it to try out the next iteration of OS X before it’s officially released and maybe even help squash a few of those bugs.
