and catalyst of leading-edge development, homing in on the
technology trends that really matter and galvanizing their

Agenda For May 2015
May 5 - How
Smart is Your Phone?
talking about programs and such in our computers, it has always
been said that most often only about 15% of the content is
being taken advantage of by users. Does that apply to all
the new mobile devices as well? I suspect it does.
Those who attend our Mobile Devices SIG are
probably among those who have learned more than most about
what is available with their smart phone, tablet, etc. For
this meeting, our own Jeff Marcus is going to show
us how he has upped his percentage of usage to his personal
advantage. I expect him to help me do the same, even though
I dont have the exact same phone. I believe pretty much
all the devices available to us have a great similarity in
what they are capable of doing.
These days every one has at least one device with a screen
(not including desktop or laptop computers). That means that
there will be at least one tip, app, or hint that we will
leave with and be very glad we didnt miss the opportunity
to find out about it. Come see if it will be the same for
By the way, questions will be welcomed!
12 - Dining with TUGNET
It's always more enjoyable to dine with friends!
Here is your next opportunity to join your TUGNET friends
and dine with a percentage of the total checks we generate
coming back to our treasury. This has to be easiest way for
you to help in our fund-raising efforts!
Come to the Sizzler and take advantage of their Bash
for Cash located at Van Nuys & Sherman Way
(7131 Van Nuys Blvd. - 818-781-4014), Van Nuys, where you
will find us enjoying each other while dining on the Sizzlers
menu. Their selection is such that there will be something
for anyones taste, including special dishes
for seniors. They are well-known for their steaks but there
are also plenty of chicken, pasta and seafood choices along
with the extensive salad bar.
This time the offer is valid
during the 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. dining time.
19 - Wolverine
This is a familiar name to many, if not most, of our membership.
We are welcoming Matt Mardini back to show us not only
the familiar but the new digital image converters and a number
of new products which he says are arriving in April. These
products are PC and MAC Compatible (Plug-and-Play no
drivers or software required) which means no matter
what type of device you have, these can be used to great advantage.
Wolverine Data products are an evolution from TIC
Computer, Inc. - a company that has been in the computer
and consumer electronic business since 1985. Matt has
been a good friend to user groups for a long time and always
offers special discounts for those attending. By the way,
he is unable to attend the Southwest Conference so this is
your only chance to see him this year.
Dont miss seeing the new product demonstrations at
this meeting. Ill bet we will hear Wow!
more than once.
