General Meeting September 2023

Apple updates the Pi on Apple Things in September 2023

September 23, 2023, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Note: this will be a virtual meeting via Zoom.

Join Washington Apple Pi in welcoming an Apple representative to give us an update on All Things Apple, as of September 2023. The Apple representative will not talk about whatever it is that Apple may announce next month, though I do hear the Sonoma wine country is on the mind of many Apple engineers.

Coming in November

Andy Ihnatko, technology columnist, will talk about how the Mac world has changed since his move to Massachusetts.

Join! Or Renew!

Once upon a time, Pi members typed in programs printed on computer printouts. Today members download programs from across the Internet. One thing both eras have in common: there is always more to learn, to share, and discover. Join or renew your membership as we chart a path path to the future.

Wanted: a few good Journals!

Yes, we really do want these issues, if you have them.

The Pi has posted a massive library of Washington Apple Pi Journal issues from 1979 to 2016, with thousands of pages of information on everything from Apple II interrupts to adding ringtones to an iPhone. If you have any of these issues and wouldn't mind giving them to us so that we could scan and post them, please write to webmaster@wap.org.

Meanwhile, a photo of a mug:

Ceramic version of Washington Apple Pi mug. A MUG (Macintosh User Group) is not normally cast in ceramic, and normally avoids water due to unfortunate side effects involving liquids, electronics, and electricity, but this mug is hydrophilic. Our highly photogenic model is former Wall Street Journal technology columnist Walt Mossberg.

Also, check out this terrifying video on electronic mail, with our Email Compendium, Volume 1. This contains lots of snippets from the General Meeting podcasts, focusing on the subject that brought the most fear and horror to the Q&A session moderators.
