The week crossing months is always short on quantity, but high on quality on “The MUG Event Calendar.”

Apple Senior Systems Engineer Dave Marra will present to a Pennsylvania group, while a group in Australia will focus on the offerings of Google, and the ever popular topic of back-up will be covered in Florida. Other topics on this week’s agenda include art on the iPhone, issues with system upgrades, spreadsheets, highlights from Macworld | iWorld 2012, Windows emulation and more.

“The MUG Event Calendar” can be found at The MUG Center (, an online resource for Mac User Groups.
