NCC-Mac March 2014 Meeting Announcement

The next meeting of the North Curry County Macintosh Users is Thursday, March 27, 4:30 PM at the Langlois Library. 


This month's topic is “This Page Intentionally Left Blank.” That’s a placeholder in case something interesting is announced at the Macworld/iWorld Expo this week. Otherwise I may just go on a rant about iTunes Match.
