A MINI-SIG for Tablet Users

Tablet computers have been increasing in popularity the last few years and why not? Their all-in-one design makes them, light and portable with amazing screen resolution.

Although they are considered computers, you must also accept the fact that they operate a little differently. For this reason, we decided that a Tablet SIG was needed to help members operate their tablets efficiently.

Our meetings are an introduction to tablets with suggestions about what they can be used for and terminology for operating commands.


Next Tablet SIG meeting will be 5:30 PM on Weds April 6th at the Education Center of Butterworth.
Join us for lots of good information on these fun new devices!

For more information, contact the group's leader, Judi McDowell.
