MacBus Meeting
*Wednesday. July 29th 7-9 PM
@ Giant Willow Grove

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
internet requirements.

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

Social Media Part 3

Web Marketing Tools

Today, more than half of Twitter users follow six or more brands. This offers businesses a unique opportunity to engage people on Twitter in real-time conversations. According to Compete, two of the top reasons Twitter users give for following a brand are special offers (94%) and exclusive content (79%). Twitter also gives marketers a unique ability to bring people closer to their interests.
Build relationships with them, reach new people and drive sales using Facebook.
Over one billion people like and comment an average of 3.2 billion times every day. When you have a strong presence on Facebook, your business is part of these conversations and has access to the most powerful kind of word-of-mouth marketing


 LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking service. It is mainly used for professional networking.

Online Meetings
Come meet, discuss, learn and share what is required.
In a world where we now communicate and collaborate mainly via the Internet, it’s important to have the right tool available. Not only do you need something that is dependable and works properly, but you also want a tool that is easy for all of your collaborators to use. Having a lot of features is nice, but if the people you’re trying to communicate with can’t figure out how to join you, more than likely you’ll end up alone!


Mobile wireless Hotspots
We will experiment with MacBUS’s wireless mobile hotspot.

Mobile hotspots are awesome. They pack fast internet access into tiny, pocketable devices so you can stay connected wherever you go, but they vary in cost, speed, and reliability. With so many options in devices and carriers, you might end up paying for more than you need or getting too little and ending up with overages. What’s the best way for you to get a affordable and reliable mobile hotspot? We decided to find out.

After first installing a new website running WordPress there will be a number of tasks you want to handle. Securing the new installation is definitely a top priority. And thankfully there are tons of free plugins you can download right from the plugins administration page.
In this article I want to present 14 specific WordPress plugins which are helpful when doing a clean install. Any new WordPress-based website can benefit from a majority of these plugins. Additionally they are all free to download and the developers often update with version enhancements. You may not need every plugin but this is certainly an exhaustive list worth a quick peek.”
