After the coffee break we broke into groups. The Mentors working group tabled a spreadsheet prepared by Bev and Marg W reviewing the Tech Savvy Drop In group participation during first Semester, then allocated themes to presenters for Drop In sessions to mid September.
The Tech Savvies group talked about topics including malware; developments in virtual reality; downloading YouTube files (Firefox does this easily but Peter is going to put an alternative in the Dropbox Techsavvies folder) and discussed the news that Microsoft are no longer forcing Windows 10 on people after losing a court case costing $10,000 in the small claims court. Les has been following up Ian’s suggestion of using ‘Malwarebytes’ to resolve malware problems and will report back about this at a future Tech Savvy Meeting.
At our August meeting Peter Simpson will explore technological changes over time in the television industry, drawing upon his rich and extensive working life as a television engineer.
