DEMO by Rick DeNatale
Although we know that primitive man learned how to draw with a rock, the precursor to the mouse, it really isn't the best tool for all artistic endeavors. Wacom is the leading provider of pressure sensitive pen tablets. They recently came out with one for the iPad. Rick will give a brief demo of both the Wacom Intuos 4 tablet for the Mac, and the Wacom Creative Stylus for the iPad
What? You're not a member? Well, that can easily be rectified.
Although the focus of our presentation will be eating and winning some great prizes TMUGers can ask about other things Apple during the Q&A session, which is where TMUGers help find solutions to problems with their Mac or iOS devices. If you need assistance, bring your questions to the meeting… and you are sure to get answers (& sometimes more questions) from the assembled TMUG members. One of your fellow TMUG members will moderate the discussion.
We will hold our popular door prize drawings throughout the meeting. So… be sure to get a ticket, that is, if you're a TMUG member. If you’re not a member – join TMUG – and then you too may get a door prize entry. There are always a variety of nice prizes, and some lucky TMUGers will be winners!
In addition to our web site & forum, you may connect with TMUG on Google+, Meetup, Twitter, & Facebook. Check the right-hand sidebar at TMUG.org for updates & details. The best way for TMUG members & other folks in our community to communicate is via our forum. And you may subscribe to the RSS feed of the forum.
As always, TMUG meetings are open to the public – you don’t have to be a TMUG member to attend. The same applies to participation on the TMUG forum, but a TMUG membership will grant you greater access to our services, including entries in contests such as last year’s MacBook Air contest and our monthly door prizes. And it will likely give you a warm feeling inside, too, knowing that you are helping to support TMUG’s mission as an educational non-profit here in the state of North Carolina. Join TMUG or renew your membership for only $35 for a full year. You may pay with cash, check, or most major credit & debit cards at a monthly meeting. (We are using the Square card reader for iOS for card payments, which will send you a receipt by email. TMUG absorbs the transaction fees using this card payment system as a convenience to members.) If you can’t make it to a meeting, you may also join or renew by mail by completing a membership application and sending your check to our PO box.
