We had our August meeting at Rodef Shalom in Shadyside. A big “thank you” to Paula and the nice folks at Jewish Residential Services for hosting us!
Here are the notes from the meeting:
- Anyone using Windows 8 tablet? Wanting to know about joining it to a domain.
- Windows Pro 8 can be joined a domain.
- iPad almost seems to be better for personal use and Windows 8 more geared for business.
- Rumor that Start menu has been put back in Windows 8.
- Speedtest.net to check network speeds
- Cogent – good internet service provider
- New standard for internet speed (read article here)
- Zones.com – hardware, software, tech reseller that offers really good deals (they purchase in bulk from tech companies like Dell, HP, etc.) – contact person is Kim Montieth, Kim.Montieth@zones.com, (800) 258-0882 x 53494
- Voicemail system hacking – how to prevent?
- Compact flash memory – can be used in place of hard drives
