June kicks into high gear on “The MUG Event Calenda”r this week.

Topics in this week’s listings include iCloud, the iPad, Google, Dragon Dictate, and Adobe Photoshop Elements and Photoshop 6. Two groups will hold their annual picnics, one will watch an informative and entertaining video, and more than a few are keeping the cards close to the vest and not announcing their meeting topics.

“The MUG Event Calendar” can be found at The MUG Center (http://www.mugcenter.com), 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. For more info on MUGs, and to find the location of the one nearest you, go to Apple’s MUG page (http://www.apple.com/usergroups/).
