We meet at the Manayunk Brewing Company along the beautiful Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and our meetings are open to all. We usually have lunch (or a brew) while we talk mobile computing.

We've got a big slate to present.

I'm going to present the latest in wearable fitness computers, including the Jawbone Up band, the BodyMedia Fit Link, and their associated iOS apps. I'm also giving an exclusive demonstration of the Withings WS-50 Smart Body Analyzer. It's your chance to preview the new wi-fi scale that measures weight, body composition, heart rate, and air quality before it starts shipping in mid April.

Rob Parker will do a roundup of the latest gadgets in the ParkerDigital stable, including the Pebble watch, Nike+ Fuel Band, FitBit One, Mophie Juice Pack Air for iPhone 5, and some iPad mini cases. Apple Distinguished Educator Youngmoo Kim will give a presentation about issues and tricks he's encountered doing presentations wirelessly using AirPlay. He'll be presenting using an Apple TV connected to a BenQ 761 projector.

Join us for a great meeting, it's free and open to you and your guests. Feel free to bring items to sell or swap as well.
