October starts up with a diverse schedule on “The MUG Event Calendar.”

“Macworld” Senior Editor Christopher Breen will visit a California group to talk about the iPhone 5, and Rob Cummings of Fujitsu Australia will present to a group there about their Mac products. Other topics on this week’s agenda include creating 3D objects with Strata, Mac use in Ireland, iOS 6, Mountain Lion, and a Mac makeover.

“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.
