At our October monthly meeting we'll be featuring the following presentations:

Bruce Mittelman and Mark Astmann will give an in-depth presentation of Apple's latest major operating system macOS Sierra. With new features like Siri on the Mac, a Universal Clipboard between macOS and iOS, iCloud Drive, Apple Pay, Optimized Storage, Apple Watch enabled macOS login and much, much more, macOS Sierra is Apple's most advanced operating system to date.

Bob Helmond and Jerry Glacken will talk about physical computer security. Sure everyone is using strong passwords, encrypted Wi-Fi, Virtual Private Networks, and other means to secure their computers, networks and communications. But what happens when someone gains physical access to your machine? Bob and Jerry will discuss just what can happen and how quickly things can go wrong.

George Ajjan will give another installment of "Three Things To Know On Your Mac " in which he'll show interesting tips and tricks that anyone can use to improve their Macintosh workflows.

Plus we'll discuss all of the latest Apple news and have our "Question & Answer" session where our experts will try to solve your problems.

As always, a meeting you won't want to miss! Hope to see you all there!
