Apple sMACdown

One of the highlights of ULearn11 in Rotorua was the annual Apple sMACdown.
The session blurb began:

  • Innovate. Create. Celebrate.
  • Bring out the inner Fanboy / Fangirl.
  • Apple users get together for a fun session of sharing the interesting, cool, funky and fun things we can do using Apple products.
  • Share your ideas, favourite apps, tips and tricks with fellow enthusiasts. ....
We welcome all comers, but do begin the session every time with, 
"The only thing you are NOT allowed to ask over the next 80 minutes is - 'Will this work on a PC?'. Because for 80 minutes we don't have to care!"

Quite a crowd showed up and the panelists had plenty of competition from the floor for funky and useful tips with all the Mac addicts present.

  2. Hi, my name is Josh Hall and I am a student in Dr. Strange's Edm310 class at the University of South Alabama. I enjoyed reading this post and that conference sounds like a lot of fun. As a Mac fanboy myself I would love to attend a sMACdown session one day.
