Sorry to have to send this Reminder so early (hope it's not so much so that you forget the meetng date) but I will be away and don't want to take the chance that I won't be able to send it at a more appropriate time. I will get the projector box and the door prizes to JoAnn so if you see her in the parking lot stop to give her a hand getting the stuff into the meeting room.
Some of you may have heard of Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview, a movie based on a 1995 interview conducted by Bob Cringely, currently available for download at Amazon and the iTunes Store.
I recently found a You Tube link to the interview and strongly recommend that you watch it.
The door prizes this month will be:
Memorex Speaker System (for iPods and other devices)
2 GB iPod Shuffle (older model)
Rosewill Hard Drive Docking Station (holds both 2.5" and 3.5" hard drives)
50 Verbatim blank DVD disks
5 in 1 Camera Connection Kit
Kingston 4 GB Thumb Drive
The usual rules will apply; each paid membership will receive one raffle ticket but additional tickets can be purchased at the cost of $1 or 6/$5. Only one prize per membership still applies.
Have a great meeting and I'll see you in October.
