Apple reps will demo Mac OS X to the Houston Area Apple Users Group (HAAUG) on Saturday, April 21, in the McMurtry Auditorium of Rice University Campus.
The HAAUG meeting will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The main presentation (OS X) starts at 11 a.m. For directions go
online, then select “Duncan Hall.” Admission to the meeting is free. But while there, you might as well join HAAUG. New members can sign up for US$25, though be warned: only a limited number are available at this price. For more info check out the
HAAUG Web site.
HAAUG is a MUG (Macintosh user group). User groups are clubs organized by people interested in sharing information about their computers. Apple has more than 600 user groups worldwide, some with fewer than 25 members, others with over 1000.
MUGs are good places for making new friends, finding Mac-loving buddies, boning up your technical expertise, finding solutions to technical problems, and sometimes finding a good deal on used hardware. Plus, there are lots of perks. For instance, MUG members could register for a free Exhibits Only pass, a $25 value, at January’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
