Apple User Group Bulletin - July 15, 2020

This month's featured vendor is Joe Kissell of Joe on Tech and Take Control Books. Joe is a senior contributor to Macworld, prolific author, and long time user group supporter. If you are a Take Control reader, you probably have at least a few of his works already. He recently joined an Apple World Apple User Group University meeting to discuss vendors and vendor offers, and he had some interesting insights. Be sure to listen to a recording of the session if you could not be there.

Better yet, Joe offers a great discount to user group members on the Apple User Group Resources blog.
