In LA: Apple - Retail - Youth Workshops

Apple Youth Workshops - Be a filmmakerI happened to notice this sign today in the Apple Store at the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square. Apple is holding 1 1/2 hour workshops on Music, Movies and Photos at most of their stores.

Here are the short descriptions from the Apple web site...

Music Workshop

Using GarageBand, we’ll teach kids to compose a song with loops, beats, and even their own vocals. At the end of the workshop, they’ll have a finished song on a CD and a workbook to use with other music projects. Please register for February workshops.

Movie Workshop

This workshop will teach kids how to import footage, crop video clips, and add special effects to produce their own movie with iMovie. When they’ve finished, these budding filmmakers can take home their masterpiece on a DVD, as well as a workbook full of tips for future moviemaking projects. Please register for March workshops.

Photo Workshop

Using iPhoto, we’ll show kids how to edit, print, and share photos and how to make photo albums and slideshows. At the end of the workshop they’ll have a DVD and a workbook to use for other photo projects. Please register for April workshops.

(Via Apple Web Site.)


There is a waiting list for upcoming events, but I see the April 25 event still has some openings. Visit the Workshop page for listings of all stores and events.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the us
