Agenda For August 2016
The pace of technology
is changing fast and wearable tech devices are now
the in thing for groups of all ages. According
to analysts at Gartner Research, the smart wearable
market, as a subset of the Internet of Things (IoT), will
generate $28.7 billion in 2016. If you want to move more,
sleep better, and improve your overall health, a fitness tracker
will give an historical overview presentation of how these
devices emerged on the scene. Like all technology revolutions
the fitness tracking device has its origins in many diverse
needs and slowly the growth of technology brought it all together.
will be followed by TUGNET members showing & telling
how they use their activity trackers. If you have one,
please plan to join the discussion.
an e-mail to Judy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you will be participating
in the show 'n tell.....the more, the merrier!

Pot Luck, Imaging Software on
a Budget plus Imaging Tips and Tricks.
Most of you know the drill but to tweak
your memory, we feast on the many dishes brought in by our
members (plan them to serve 8-10). Please
remember that if you are unable to bring a dish, we will ask
you to contribute $10 so we can add additional food to the
table as needed. We want to have plenty for everyone!
This plan has worked well in the past, so we should have a
great dinner party.
