The big news this week is Apple’s announcement tomorrow about their latest offering(s) in the iPhone lineup. I know I’ll be tuned in to find out all the gory details…

Also, for those of you in neighboring communities, I’m currently researching options/venues for presenting more classes in your towns! Stay tuned…

Now for the lowdown on this month’s Mac classes:

 First off, Saturday, October 15th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will again present a class on Apple’s Pages program. Come learn how to master this formidable word-processing/page layout program, which is a good deal more user-friendly and fun to use than Microsoft Word! Cost is $20.

   Then, on Saturday, October 29th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will be revisiting the topic of Social Networking. In this class I will cover Facebook, Google+ Twitter, LinkedIn, etc., etc. The emphasis will be on figuring out how to navigate these wild & crazy new social fads, especially in light of all the recent changes on Facebook & the emergence of Google+ as a strong contender… At the same time, you’ll learn how to maintain the privacy levels we all prefer. If there’s interest, I will also cover the ways in which these tools can be put to use in marketing a business. Cost is also $20.

***The above classes are always held in the small meeting room at Ridgway Town Hall, and are open to drop-ins, with no sign-up necessary***

Then, don’t forget, there’s always…

 The regular FREE “Overview of Mac OS X” class will take place on the last Wednesday of the month, October 26th 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)!

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