Do You Use Macintosh Computers?
"Quid tergum tuum non purus?
Are You Located in Island County, WA?
You've got MAGIC!
(What do you mean you didn’t back up your files?) "
Membership of MAGIC is free and open to anyone interested in Apple products. Membership will get you a monthly email about the upcoming meeting and the latest newsletter. Also announcements about upcoming classes. The newsletter provides warnings about any threats to your Macs or iDevices as well as a number of articles that we think will be of interest to our members, especially those who might qualify as "beginners".
MEETINGS ON ZOOM
Monthly meetings are generally on the third Wednesday of the month and are being held on Zoom. Anyone may ask to be included in the meeting by emailing MAGIC and asking to be included.
Everyone is encouraged to sent in questions ahead of the meetings at this MAGIC email. The MAGIC gurus will be able to research the questions and provide detailed andwers and presentations at the meeting.
All the presentations from January 2021 to November 2023 can be found on this website here.
