Did You Hear the News?

Keeping up with the news you are interested in can be a daunting task. Do I just follow people on Twitter? Do I subscribe to RSS feeds? BTW – What’s a “RSS feed”?? Can I get my news from podcasts?

Please join us at the next Mini’app’les meeting!

    Pick the Best Cloud Drive Service for You

    Having access to your files on all your devices is more important and beneficial than it has ever been. Keeping your Mac, iPad and iPhone in sync gives you the power to have everything you need at your fingertips all the time. There are many affordable services available for cloud drives, but one size never fits all. In the upcoming macOS Catalina, iCloud Drive is getting some nice updates and Dropbox recently made some updates that have angered many users. Lets discuss these options for syncing our files.

    Please join us at the next Mini’app’les meeting!
