Make your sad Mac happy again! At DVMUG’s legendary MacClinic., we can upgrade your Mac’s memory (you supply the memory; we can tell you where to get it). We can upgrade most Macs’ data storage by installing a new hard drive or solid-state drive. We can troubleshoot problems with malware, adware, and botched installations. We can help setup of your iOS device, back it up to your Mac, and transfer your data to a new iOS device. Appointments for the MacClinic must be made by phone (for triage), then time slots will be assigned. Remember that the services you receive as part of your DVMUG membership beat the heck out of what you would pay elsewhere. Obviously, the DVMUG office rent never stops and donations are gratefully received.

Our presenter for the June General Meeting will be Jason Snell. Jason was Editor at Macworld for over a decade, leaving around the same time as their announcement of the end of their print edition. He now runs a site called Six Colors, which provides daily coverage of Apple, other technology companies, and the intersection of technology and culture. 

Jason’s knowledge and experience in the Apple universe are extensive. If you’d like to hear Jason’s insight about the recent Apple WWDC join us at the June General Meeting.

The Diablo Valley Mac Users Group helps Macintosh users get the most out of their computers. Software, hardware, digital filmmaking, photography—these subjects and more are covered in the club’s monthly General Meeting, workshops, and Special Interest Groups.

You are invited to attend our general meetings at the Pleasant Hill Community Center for vendor and club presentations on new hardware, software, and other items of Mac interest. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with a Question & Answer segment where you are welcome to ask about your own Mac problems; there’s a break during which the club Mac experts answer your questions one-on-one, and a raffle in addition to the main presentation, usually by a software publisher or hardware manufacturer.

Dues for the entire family are $40 per year-a bargain! Especially since it includes access to the club’s award-winning monthly newsletter, ApplePRESS, and attendance at all Special Interest Group meetings including the monthly MacClinic, where club experts diagnose and repair what’s wrong with your Mac as well as helping you with software upgrades, hard-drive replacement, and similar improvements.

Tuesday morning Robert Skapura will be leading the Photos SIG. Robert will be covering a variety of topics on the Photos app for both macOS and iOS.

If you have a Mac with problems, then call Rick Calicura at (925) 228-4992 for an appointment for Saturday’s MacClinic and DVMUG’s staff of experts will help fix or upgrade your computer. Be sure to call early, if you’d like an appointment for this Saturday. The MacClinic is free; however, donations are gratefully accepted. They help support the club.
