May kicks off with a bang on “The MUG Event Calendar.”

Ted Landau will make a virtual visit to an Illinois group, and Apple Senior Systems Engineer Dave Marra will be live and in person at a New York group. Al Mooney of Adobe will address a California Final Cut group. Other topics on this week’s agenda include the iCloud transition, Pages, video conferencing apps, online shopping eBooks and more.

“The MUG Event Calendar” can be found at The MUG Center (, an online resource for Mac User Groups. MUGs are good places for making new friends in the Mac community, improving your computing skills, finding solutions to technical problems, and perhaps locating a good deal on used hardware.
