General Meeting - Leader: JB Burke


Featuring: Hewie Poplock, APCUG

There are many reasons to cut the cord. Most do so to save money. Others do it to have better choices and just to be able to fire their cable company. There are many choices of products and equipment, as well as services that are now available to let us change the way we have done things in the past. Hewie will talk about over the air and over the Internet services, including the many ways to fulfill your wants and needs as to TV viewing. He will include information about broadband and as well as Internet home phones.

Special Topics SIG - Leader: JB Burke


The Covid-19 may have us cooped up at home and wearing masks to protect each other, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty to see and do on the web. Some educational, some inspiring and some humorous as usual. And keep your fingers crossed - we think we've solved the problem of showing videos over Zoom.

Membership Info

Fun Stuff

A typical Q&A meeting chaired by some of our favorite PCS members. It's known as a "Stump The Geeks" session which is always enjoyed by all those who attend.

We often hold Question and Answer sessions at General meetings where our members attempt to "Stump The Geeks" with their questions about computer and smartphone problems and other related issues.

Do the geeks ever get stumped? Of course, once in a while they do but we all appreciate the very interesting and informative discussions that are held. I guess you'll just have to come to a meeting to see for yourself.

Due to the Coronavirus all Prescott Computer Society meetings will be held online.
