Ibrahim,

Will do, but note that these are intended as introductions to the products 
rather than for advanced users.

Hi Steve.

I'm an IPhone owner and could really value a session like this, but I'll be 
training with my new guide dog in January, so please keep us informed of 
other taste the apple sessions as I'd love to learn about new and useful 
IPhone aps as well as advanced voice over features.

All the best, Ibrahim.
