Several of our members have discover a new and useful techie tool.
It is called a HooToo and it serves up many useful tools for today’s users.
See below for a writeup and an Amazon sales ad.
This meeting will be a hands on with some give and take discussion.
Bring your device if you want to participate and play.
Why I chose the HooToo TM03 over the other options available
Here’s what it does.
1. Has a 3000 mah internal rechargeable battery which equals about 1-2 full
iPhone charges (a partial iPad charge or 2 iPod charges)
2. Has an Ethernet jack that connects to a (Internet) wall jack and creates
a 5 user wireless network (about 30 foot distance at N speeds) – like a
mini version of an Airport Express) (runs about 8 hours on a charge) (can
create a private network anywhere)
3. Acts as a Portable Media Server for Music (MP3s) Video (Mov) Images
(Jpeg etc) Documents (Up to 5 users – can play from the music folder, Play
same or different videos, access documents, view images) Any 5 users any 5
files simultaneously – within 30 feet
4. Act as a card reader/writer when hooked up to a computer via its USB
5. Has the ability to use any Micro SD card up to 64GB inserted in it’s
internal slot to be loaded from a computer or uploaded from an iDevice
wirelessly (or Android devices) as a storage device to off load files from
the limited mobile storage capabilities.
At home it can be set to bridge your home internet WiFi allowing access to
its files throughout the house or area, or be it’s own private peer network
It can be used to move files from an iPad to HooToo to Android phone one
image or an entire folder of images (at N Network speeds) anywhere without
We shoot with multiple cameras (all using some form of SD Micros and
adapters) and at the end of the day the chips can be placed in the HooToo
allowing review at iPad size and select specific images
7 – 9 PM
The board has decided to have 4 meetings a year. These meetings will be held on different evenings at the same location as our current meetings, Giant Food Stores in Willow Grove. We will see which day is more convenient for members.
We will have our usual Q&A‘s at the November meeting so bring your questions and bring a friend or coworker who you think could benefit from our meeting. Review software for MacBUS and keep it – for free! We plan to give away books and software packages at meetings and all we ask in return is that you submit a review!

POSTPONED TO APRIL 1
Text Edit has been around since the beginning of Mac. It used to be Simple Text and had the .txt extension with few options. Since graduating to TextEdit and using the .rtf and .rtfd formats, it has learned how to do a lot more. It is a most useful tool along with it’s alter ego Preview, together they can manage multimedia in many forms as well as most other word processors in a pinch. I’ll touch on as many features as possible and demonstrate how they can be used. Most of these features have been buried in there since Tiger, but they do not get much attention.Meetings are held at
Giant Food Store
315 York Road
2nd Floor Conference room
Willow Grove, PA 19090
The center has wireless Internet connections, a cafe serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and plenty of free parking.
