Hess Events List for Macworld-iWorld & iTunes U

Macworld-iWorld Events
The Robert Hess Memorial Macworld Events List for Macworld-iWorld next week is ready for your viewing pleasure! 

Even if you  cannot attend Macworld-iWorld, check the list, because it contains things to do on the Web too. The Web-based events may not be Macworld specific, but they’re interesting nonetheless! Please click the banners on the Hess List page to support the advertisers on the “The List.”


iTunes U New
Yesterday Apple announced a new iTunes U app, which makes accessible all of its formerly private educational courses and more. I have used and downloaded content from the iTunes U portion of the iTunes Store for years and it is a great resource.

I have podcasts on my Mac and iPod on how to learn to play jazz piano, sessions about great jazz artists, various Adobe-related tutorials, and some interesting general science podcasts. I do not yet know how the new app differs from the content I used to grab, but I recommend you check out iTunes U and see what buried interest you can uncover there.

Troubleshooting Resources Update
My Friday update to my Mac OS X 2012 Troubleshooting Resources page takes a backseat to the Hess List this week. I plan to update the troubleshooting page over the weekend, so please check back to see the newest Apple Support Doc additions. A number of articles dealing with iBooks 2 and iBooks Author, also announced yesterday, will be added.

I have published many articles on Apple related products, but I cut my writer's teeth producing grants and market research reports when the Web was just something a spider made. I've also worked as a photographer, dancer and social worker. ilene's Machine was born in 2000 when I realized everything I did involved some kind of machine. First, my answering machine, next a Vic 20, then a Mac 128. Add a variety of Macintosh machines and iOS devices over the years and before you know it, you have reached ilene's Machine.
