Computer Safety Class Socastee Library 10/27/2012

For those who attended (and anyone else who might be interested) here is a link to the Powerpoint presentation.  Please note that there are plenty of hyperlinks on the slides that will take you, when you click on them, to additional information on the topic.

NOTE: For the hyperlinks to work, you must be in "full screen" mode while looking at the slides.  To put the slideshow into "full screen" mode, look at the bottom of the first slide.  You will see a gray horizontal bar with left and right arrowheads on it.  At the far right of that bar are four arrows in a square indicating that if you click here it will make the window larger.  Left clicking it will put you in full screen mode.  Once you are in full screen mode, you can use the right and left arrow keys on your keyboard to go forward and backward through the presentation.

Here is the link to the slides.  Click on it:   Computer Safety

Apple's New Offerings

Wow!  A fantastic bundle of new products!  Here they are in brief:

1. A new generation of iMacs - an "all in one" desktop computer just 5mm (two tenths of an inch) at the edge with an incredible glare reduced high definition screen, see

2. The iPad mini - a new (additional) size with a 7.9 inch display that you can hold in one hand.  Runs all the apps that the current size runs but is less expensive and more convenient, see

3. The fourth generation of the standard size iPad, still with a retina display but now twice as fast, see

4. A new 13" Retina display MacBook Pro - see
