Macworld | iWorld, Mac IT and CES have all come and gone and we'll report on what we thought of the shows and conferences along with some demos/photos of some new stuff we saw.

We've also been seeing a lot of discussion about speech-to-text apps with iOS. Siri on the iPhone 4S is Apple's built-in tool for converting your spoken words into typed text. We'll spend a little time on some Siri tips and tricks but we'll also review some other programs that will save you some typing on the keyboard.

We'll also go over some current events in the OS X world as well as review some cool Mac & iOS apps and leave some time for Q&A.

Our meeting this month will be at the same location as last month. We thank Jan Chesne for allowing us to use the rec room at her townhome.

Address: 2700 Pearl St. in Santa Monica (Pearl & 27th). 

Directions: 27th St. going south from Pico ends in the entrance to the complex (In front it says Village Park Townhomes).  Go in the entrance, turn right, go over 2 speed bumps (street curves to the left) and park in the parking spaces or anywhere along the road where it doesn't say "No parking."  The rec room is across the road from the parking spaces and slightly south.  The rec room is off Unit 60 (please don't bother any of the residents).
