This month the presentation will be on the Apps RadioPlay and Radios - for the sports and music enthusiasts.

Note: Please bring your own ear buds to all Tech-Ease drop-in sessions to help us eliminate distractions and interfering with each other.

Although it isn’t necessary, if you happen to have a question that may require some research on our part, let VIRN know a few days in advance. This will help us and make it easier to possibly bring someone in who could answer your question(s) or work with you on the device you have brought along.
