The April CMUG meeting will be
held on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at the East Columbia
CMUG's own Paul Van Bloem will be discussing
TV from the Internet and the options
for free and pay shows and movies from the Internet.
Paul says, "I would like to look at the streaming sources available
on the Internet, including Hulu,
NetFlix, and Amazon.
If we have time, I'd also like to
discuss linking your TV to the Internet so you can watch streaming video on it."
Remember that we still need to be out of the meeting room before
the library closes at 9, so we will be starting promptly at 7:30.
See you on Thursday at 7:30 pm at the
East Columbia library.

Thanks to Beth Tribe from the Howard County Library,
who told (and showed) us all about using Overdrive at the
February meeting. Overdrive is the system Maryland libraries use to lend eBooks to their customers.
Thanks to Paul Demmitt, who spoke on
Windows 8 at the January meeting. He passed along his notes,
