...................................................................... On January 6, 2004, the Macintosh was a few days over 20 years old and Steve Jobs had exciting news: Apple had a new type of software, called GarageBand, and a new format for the iPod, an iPod Mini with a huge 4GB of storage. How would we ever fill all that space? With this month's release of the newest version of GarageBand, it seems like a great time to watch its introduction, with John Mayer performing and Steve Jobs explaining the ways that GarageBand could open a world of possibilities. This month's featured "How To" offers a look at how User Group presentations can take advantage of the new Keynote features introduced in macOS Sierra. In part two of his series on Keynote, Rick Ortiz, Chair of the Apple User Group Advisory Board, discusses Collaboration for Keynote, which is a new beta feature added with the introduction of macOS Sierra and iOS 10. Interested in a quick presentation for February? Powerful new features are now available in GarageBand for iOS and Logic Pro X for all levels of music makers, from enthusiasts to pros, and the topic could be perfect for a group meeting. Check out GarageBand for iOS - First Look (L549342A-en_US) and Logic Pro X - First Look (L549343A-en_US). And, for the students in your group, Apple, Inc. has a wonderful new offer: Students with the proper ID can purchase Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor 4, and MainStage 3 for $199 (USD).
