There seems to be an email that is doing the rounds at the moment - one that has given a couple of iTandCoffee clients a fright just this week.
The below image shows an example of this email, which alleges that your email account (or some other account) and router has been hacked - and even shows a password that is perhaps one that you have used (and may still use).
I have had lots of questions from Mac users over the past few weeks about whether it is time yet to upgrade to Mac's latest operating system, MacOS Mojave 10.14 (which is now at version 10.14.1, after an update released at the end of October)
I have to say that I have been using Mojave now for nearly 2 months and, in general, it is working without any issues. And I love some of the new features.
If you are new-ish to Excel, you may have found that printing of your Excel worksheet can be a tad challenging - working out how to ensure that the worksheet is not split across multiple pages and impossible to read.
There is a simple trick to ensuring that your worksheet's width is set to fit within your page's width - and we have recorded a short tutorial on this topic for our iTandCoffee Club members.
Note from Lynette: After a lovely coffee with local and fellow St Kevins school mum Moira Tobin - where we talked about life as busy mums - I asked Moira to write about a great piece of household technology that she knows and loves, and that I thought would make a great Christmas gift idea! Heres's what she wrote ...
iTandCoffee presented the topic Great Apps for Mobile Devices at Hawthorn's U3A last week. At the end of the session, the attendees offered their own suggestions for handy apps on their mobile devices. Two suggestions stood out as particularly relevant after after the recent Bourke Street terrorist attack.
These are apps that allow you to easily report on something that has happened or that you have seen. Our resident digital native Heidi writes about these apps below.

Over the last couple of years, I have been making a lot more use of Apple's Notes app than I used to.
Even though Evernote is still my main app for storing client notes, receipts, bills, renewal notices, etc, I am using the Notes app rather much more regularly for a range of things, including
You might think that the digital natives in your life know it all when it comes to mobile devices. While it is true that young people grow up with this technology, that does not mean that they are necessarily savvy about things beyond what they use on a day-to-day basis!
Case in point ...
I was asked by a digital native close to me (who shall not be named!) whether there was any way to create and send a voice recording on an iPhone, one that could then be sent to someone else and added to a video that was being created for school.
The two digital natives involved in the school project were considering using Snapchat to record their voices, in the absence of another way to do this. Innovative, but quite unnecessary!

When you type a formula into a cell, and then want to copy it to a range of cells in the same row or column, how do you achieve this?
Did you know that there is really quick and easy way of doing this copy - one that may just involve a simple 'double-click'?

If you have ever collaborated on a document, or asked someone to review a document, you will be familiar with the 'revision marks' that can be used to show the changes that have been made or suggested.
For those of you who have not discovered this feature of Microsoft Word, you can turn on something called 'Tracking' to keep track of changes that are made to a document - for example, when you draft a document and then ask others to review and suggest any changes.
But how do you a) turn on this revision tracking and b) turn it off when you don't want to see the revisions or comments any more.
A recent experience of an iTandCoffee client highlights an important security warning for all of us.
Don't rely on email / text for communicating bank account details, especially for large transfers
If you ever ask someone to transfer money to your bank account, or you are asked to transfer money to someone else - especially where the amount involved is large - be very careful about trusting the bank account details that you provide (or are provided) via email.
