HMAUS’ Dr Kokua explores MacScan3 to get to the bottom of the often asked question “Do Macintosh computers need malware software?”

Dr Kokua is currently in the lab to get past the myths and misinformation about today’s security risks and he will present his findings at the HI Tech Learning Clinic on Saturday, March 4 at the Nuuanu Baptist Church.

Dr Kokua’s research may help you decide if MacScan 3 will help you with this year’s spring cleaning. Here is a list of the key features:

Detect & Remove Mac Malware

MacScan will find and clean malware threatening your Mac, including:

  • Trojan Horses
  • Keystroke Loggers
  • Spyware
  • Adware
  • Worms
  • Scareware

Clean up Internet clutter

MacScan can seek out and destroy privacy threats such as blacklisted tracking cookies, leaving the rest of your browsing data in place, or free up valuable hard drive space by locating and removing unnecessary files left behind by web browsers. All of this is in addition to removing malware threats.

Learn Time Lapse Photography @ Nuʻuanu Baptist Church
Mar 4 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Timelapse photo

Join Ricky Li, photographer, videographer, and stuff do’er for a tutorial on how to create your own time-lapse video.

For once, this is something phone photographers will have an advantage — you won’t need a dSLR to do this.

Ricky will go over the basics of time-lapse photography/videography, guide you through making your first video, and give you some tips on how to take your time-lapses to the next level.

What you’ll need to bring for this workshop

1. Smartphone with a time-lapse app such as Lapse It if your phone doesn’t
have a time-lapse function built in.

Apple app store:

Google/android app store:

2. A way to hold your smartphone in one place for long periods of
time. e.g. tripod mount, books to wedge it in between, pounds of silly
putty, etc.


3. Your charging cable/battery pack/charger. Your phone will be on for
a long period of time and your battery will take a hit.

Bonus: If you have a GoPro or other camera with timelapse function, we
can go thru how to use them. Though compiling the final result will
mostly be a hypothetical procedure/talk as it’s a little more involved
and we might not be able to cover it in class (depends on time).

What is time-lapse? A video composed of pictures taken over a (long)
period of time, that gives the impression of compressing time. See the
vids below.
