    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).

    Ambassadors: February is a great month to check out ASW!

    As always, if you have an idea for a resource, let us know.
