October 2013 General Meeting

Entertainment Media and Apple Devices

October 26, 2013, 9:30 a.m., George Mason University

Apple makes a wide variety of hardware and software designed to do everything from play music to show TV programs on your iPod, iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, or Mac laptop or desktop machine. But do you know how iRadio works? Or how to stream a movie, or watch HBO on your iPad when you aren't sitting at home in front of your TV?

Mike Wish, an Apple user since birth (or close enough) and former Apple Store Expert and Genius as well as current Apple Certified Support Professional, Apple Certified Mac Technician, Apple Certified Mobile Technician, etc., has spread the Apple message to 16 countries on four continents. He will dive into the world of melding entertainment media and Apple devices, and probably have answers to questions you don't even know how to ask.

The meeting will be held at our usual location, the Enterprise building, Room 178 on the George Mason University campus in Fairfax VA. Check back closer to the meeting date for any updates or changes.

Once again, we will attempt to stream it over the Internet: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/wap-general-meeting.

Important Parking Information: Two Options, Paid and Free

The Shenandoah Parking Garage (formerly the Sandy Creek Parking Garage because it is located on Sandy Creek) is fee-based facility. It is more convenient and closer to the meeting location. The Pi will subsidize the facility's parking fee by providing vouchers for donation request of $4.00.

If using the parking garage, park in Visitor's area; i.e., the lowest level. Take the elevator to the third floor (Campus Level), and exit along the sky bridge.

After the meeting, exit the garage using the exits marked for Validated Tickets. Your parking ticket goes in first. Then the validation ticket goes in next. If you have any problems, there is a speaker box for calling the parking lot attendant at the checkout point.

Free parking in Lot A (see map below)

Park as close to Mattaponi River Lane as possible, then walk north along that road toward the main campus buildings. The sidewalk route takes you directly to the side of Enterprise Hall, on your left. The meeting room is located on the second floor, accessible via outside stairs or via an elevator on your right as soon as you enter the building through the doors behind the outside stairs. We will endeavor to have signs posted to help guide you to the right location. It is at least a five-minute walk from Lot A and up a slight incline. We will be using a golf cart along the route, to offer rides to those who want or need a lift.

Handicapped Parking: There are three handicap parking spaces next to Enterprise Hall that can be used by members, on a first come first served basis. Have your Handicap Sticker showing on the dashboard or on the rear-view mirror.
