Macworld magazine editor Chris Breen produces a monthly feature called “Breen’s Bungalow” that’s available on the CDs bundle with newsstand copies of the publication. User groups, however, get access to special versions geared toward them, and this month Breen has put together a Bungalow that features never-before-seen footage, complete with appearances by special guests.

In other news this week at The MUG Center, Monday is the last day to get free exhibit hall passes to Macworld Conference & Expo San Francisco, according to the latest news at The Macintosh User Group (MUG) Center. You still have until Dec. 10 to receive a 15 percent discount on conference packages, however.
Finally, The MUG Center also offers several other news items, including changes to the Apple Volunteer MUG teams, new vendor discounts only for MUGs and the results from last week’s survey question. Editor Chuck Joiner wanted to know how individuals stay informed, and 100 percent of the 92 respondents said they rely on the Apple User Group Bulletin, among other sources. The MUG Center’s own weekly news update came in second at 97 percent and regular visits to the Web site were third at 54 percent. This week the question is “What promotional items or clothing do your members prefer?”
