Trio of Trusted TMOers Treats Macworld

A trio of TMOers will be speaking at Macworld this afternoon, but all at the same time unfortunately. The good news is that you’ll have lots of choice, depending on what topic interests you.

This session delves “under the hood” of iOS to explore topics that go beyond the basics of what you’ll find in typical iOS manuals. For starters, you’ll learn about the iOS-related files stored on your Mac (from firmware updates to app files to backup files) - where they are and how they can be accessed to solve a variety of iOS problems. 

The session also covers hints and tips regarding iOS file sharing, AirPrint, AirPlay, and more. It explains how and why to use iOS-related Mac utilities such as iPhone Configuration Utility, DiskAid, PhoneView, and others. It similarly covers iOS-installed system utilities.

The Mac Observer Managing Editor Jeff Gamet will be showing how you can use cloud-based services to keep the data and files on your Mac, iPhone and iPad in sync at Macworld Expo 2011. Jeff’s session starts at 3:30PM pacific time on Friday, January 28.

Macworld Expo descibes Jeff’s Working in the Cloud: Best Online Services for Storing and Sharing Your Data as

Dropbox, Evernote, Google: The Internet is loaded with cloud-based services designed to make your life easier, keep you connected with information, and help you share files. Some are free, some require payment, and some are “freemium,” giving you a handful of features for free and even more when you pay. In this session we’ll take a look at the best freemium services for the Mac, iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, and how to use them effectively so your important information is always just a mouse click or finger tap away.

The Mac Observer columnist Bob LeVitus will be showing how to record, mix and master songs quickly in GarageBand at Macworld Expo 2011. Bob’s session starts at 3:30PM pacific time on Friday, January 28.

Macworld Expo descibes Bob’s GarageBand 101: Record, Mix, and Master a Song in Under an Hour session as

When you have a song - either your own or your interpretation of someone else’s - GarageBand is one of the fastest and easiest ways to get it out of your head and onto “tape.” This session shows you how to record, mix, and master a song in under an hour with GarageBand ‘11. Watch and listen as Dr. Mac lay down drum, bass, guitar, and vocal tracks, creates a stereo mix, considers sweetening options, and masters a song he’d be proud to share with producers, artists, or friends, all in less than an hour.

Macworld Expo 2011 runs from January 26 through January 29 at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco. For more information about the Expo and events, visit the Macworld Expo Web site.
