[*]Report on IIEC Fall Meet

September 18 (Sun), Hiroko Barall Room in the 2nd floor, JCCC. 1pm-4pm.
[*]Subjects discussed:

We enjoyed discussions on computer/internet, as well as Uber, airline ticket, cataract, hearing aids etc.

* Mr Takabe presented a simple seminar on dashboard camera. Model LS300W.  $89 at Amazon (Free shipping).  (Nobby's comment: I thought the device was pretty good).
* Tablet: iPad Air 2 (Enjoyable), Toshiba c/w detachable keyboard (Very light), Google Nexus 7 charging problem.
* Windows 10 was doing updating over the weekend, taking two hours (2 people). Windows 10 Script failure. Why?
* A credit card is needed to register to use Uber --> Made a credit card with the limit of $500.
* Tapping feature of credit cards: Hackers can steal the card information by passing beside you. --> (1) Protect it with aluminum foil, (2) Put more than 3 cards together to disrupt the signals.
* A ring at the back of smart phones: Avoid dropping by putting a finger through while holding: $20.
* Airline tickets: It is hard to get seats by using the Aeroplan points. (1) Multiple transit points taking a long hours even days, (2) The cash paying portion is very expensive. The cash portion of US airlines is reasonable.
* Cabin luggage: 500ml maple butter was confiscated.
* Cheap accommodation:
* Information exchanged on cataract surgery, hearing aids, dental implants etc.

... etc., etc. It was full of laughter for 3 hours.
