Tuesday 23 March – Main Meeting – 6–8 pm

Alex Zaharov-Reutt

Hi everyone, Alex here.

My efforts this month in securing a presenter weren’t successful, partly through leaving it a bit late, and partly through every company wishing to come next month. Next month we’ll have two presentations and will be locked-in this week so there isn’t a repeat, but there’s still plenty of interesting stuff to talk about. That said I might still find a presenter on Monday, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

In the event no presenter is forthcoming, we will do the following:

  • Have an extended Q&A session where you can Ask Alex Almost Anything and get your questions answered.
  • Note an interesting change in Windows 7’s “XP Mode” that makes it more useful to Windows 7 users.
  • Take a look at the Office 2010 beta, which anyone can download free now and use until October.
  • Talk about the new trend towards 3D TV – Samsung, Sony and Pioneer are releasing 3D TVs this year for consumers to buy – but should you rush out and buy one, or wait for version 2 of the new 3D TVs that probably won’t arrive until 2011, given that the first models will arrive mid-year.
  • Look at the new Netcomm 3G/Wi-Fi Travel Router.
  • Look at Varta’s new solar powered battery charger.
  • Take a look at Diskeeper’s new 2010 version that says it eliminates fragmentation before it happens.
  • Talk about laptop and desktop RAM upgrades

So – even though there’s no official presenter as yet, we will still have an info-packed main meeting with a lot of interesting things to look at and talk about, and I’ve got a few gadgetry knick-knacks as prizes.

See you on Tuesday night!
