HAVE YOUR COMPUTER QUESTIONS ANSWERED!

The program planners for our First Wednesday PATACS meetings in Arlington are looking for topics that members would like to have explored or questions answered - this is your opportunity to have a say in topics addressed at this meeting. This is a smaller meeting than the Fairfax meeting, and it allows for much more interaction between members than is possible in Fairfax. And there's the post-meeting Pizza and Salad SIG, the post-meeting social at a nearby restaurant - another value-added feature of your membership! (SIG Suspended - pending Covid resolution) Please send your suggestions to our meeting program planners at arlmtgpgm@patacs.org.

Importance of New Apple Computers
Presented by Lorrin Garons


On June 22nd Apple announced that over a two year period, the company would be switching from Intel based CPUs to their own designed processor hardware for their computers. On November 10th they announced the availability of three of these new computers, with the new architecture, using the M1 chip, which are now available for purchase. This presentation will provide information on the characteristics of the new Apple computers, the transition process, software issues, performance, and the broad implications of this change.


: Lorrin Garson had a long career in technical publishing of chemical information. His presentations to our computer groups are famous for their thorough research and clarity in explaining topics such as cryptography, encryption of personal data, cloud storage and the origins of personal computers.

Important Nuances of iTunes for Windows
Presented by John Krout

This presentation will show you three very important and valuable techniques in iTunes for Windows:

  • When you install iTunes on a new computer, Apple may say that you have hit the 5-computer limit for use of your Apple ID. You will learn how to overcome that limit.
  • When Apple reports that your credit card is expired, how to update your iTunes account record, and
  • How to configure iTunes to export Apple's M4A format songs as MP3 songs.
None of these how-tos are intuitive, despite Apple's reputation for that software design approach.


John Krout is a past president of WACUG, a predecessor organization of PATACS. A frequent meeting presenter, John also was the author of many of the articles on our Zoom reference page, and many PATACS Posts newsletter offerings..
