Come join us at our June meeting where we will feature the following presentations:

Bruce Mittelman will give demonstrations of the Amazon Echo and iUSBportCAMERA. The iUSBportCAMERA allows you to wirelessly tether your digital SLR camera to your smartphone or computer. It pairs with the iUSBportCAMERA app to transform your phone or computer into a wireless remote and preview device. The Amazon Echo is a voice command device with functions like question answering, playing music, weather and news, and controlling smart devices.

Bruce will also give an overview of Google Photos, the photo and video sharing and storage service recently launched by Google.

Scott Alenick will give a demonstration of Business Card Composer, the DIY buisiness card design app for Mac. Business Card Composer allows you to create and print beautiful, professional business cards in just a few easy steps.

Jerry Glacken will give an overview of BitTorrent Sync, the cross-platform, peer-to-peer file synchronization tool. BitTorrent Sync allows users to easily sync files between devices on a local network, or between remote devices over the Internet via a modified version of the BitTorrent protocol.

Bob Helmond will give another installment of his "Macintosh Security Talk" where he discusses current security issues any Mac user needs to know.

Plus we'll be discussing all the latest news and products announced at the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference.

As always, a meeting you won't want to miss! Hope to see you all there!
