Lifehacker Article Expounds on Syncing Options: We Say, “Look to PCsync.”
With Google Drive being released, there has been a lot of discussion about online storage programs and which ones better allow for syncing files. Is Google going to oust Dropbox out of the cloud-based storage game? Do we have a David v.s. Goliath case on our hands or are these two companies evenly matched?
Intense online-storage battles aside, we’re more interested in how we can help end-users sync their data locally. There are consumers that want to bypass using other companies’ servers or the cloud to store and sync their sensitive data.
The fine folks over at Lifehacker put up an article detailing the different options for syncing files between computers while avoiding storing data online. If someone wants to sync their data without having to upload personal information to the cloud, what can they do? With more and more people today owning multiple PCs and smart devices, the issue of keeping data up-to-date amongst all of them is more relevant than ever.
There are still a lot of people using XP, especially businesses. We wanted to make it less expensive and easier than ever to make the move. So right now, if you choose PCmover Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant for your “in-place” upgrades, you can get it for under $1 a license. Check out the offer here.
We are also hosting a webinar on August 10th that will talk all about this campaign and how you can make the move to Windows 7. Register for the webinar here.
Don’t put off the transfer to Windows 7 any longer, let us help you make the move now!
As many probably know, we recently released new encryption software called PC Lock™. This software makes encryption easy for anyone, but do a lot of people still think that the process is reserved for secret agents and spies? Probably, but that’s not a personally smart way of thinking. Computerworld UK just posted a story the other day that could affect millions of people in the region.
The story discusses that an UNENCRYPTED laptop containing medical data for 8.63 million people had gone missing from a hospital in London. The laptop included details on 18 million hospital visits over an unknown period of time.
Can you imagine being one of those 8 million people? Going to the doctor is a very private matter and you rely on the hospital taking the correct measures to make sure your private information is kept that way. This goes for the information that you have direct control over as well.
With the growing number of data insecurity cases, such as the hack on Sony’s® Playstation Network™ leaving millions of people’s information open for the taking, it is more important now than ever to take control. While not everything is in our direct control, it is important to take strict measures to make sure that our information is never out in the open where others can access it. This is where encryption, and PC Lock, comes in to play.
We drew the winner of the contest yesterday and the winner is BECKY HORN! Check out her picture below, doesn’t she look excited? Becky wins the Famous laptop, a Targus leather laptop bag, PCmover Ultimate and several other Laplink products. Pretty great prize if I say so myself…
Sorry to those of you that didn’t win… But don’t be too sad, we are working on getting more laptops from other partners to bring you more exciting contests and chances to win more stuff! Hey, here’s an idea, maybe you should post on your favorite PC manufacturers wall and tell them they should give us stuff to give away, it might just help!
Just because the contest is over doesn’t mean we want you to stop posting… So please, keep talking to us we love to hear from you!
Today at 12 PM Pacific Time we will stop tracking mentions of the keywords and any mentions from that point on will not count as official entries (but please keep posting, we like to see it!) We will be gathering the entry list over the rest of this week and will keep you updated on how that goes. The drawing for the winner will take place next week, so stay tuned! Besides, we are known to throw a curve ball or two so don’t miss it!
Also, make sure to pay close attention to your email. If you are picked as the winner, we will be emailing you first to make sure you are eligible to win.

You know it’s true. Every one of you entrantees was thinking what I was thinking on that fateful November day when the contest ended. But this also has special meaning for us. It signified the end of an award winning social media campaign, the first one that any of us had tried. So it was nice to finally kick our feet up and look at what we accomplished. Of course, the contest would have been nothing without you, the contestee! So thank you for being awesome!
I’ve also got to give props to the rest of the Laplink Marketers. While you are usually hearing from me on these posts (Andy Tolton), you unfortunately don’t get to interact with the stellar brainiacs that I get to on a daily basis, and without whom this contest would have never happened in the first place. So a shout out to Neil Minetto, Josh Conley, Ralf Bennett, Creed Cameron(the intern that is flapping his wings back at school), Evan Mann(new intern) and Brian Duimstra(the new web/design guy). Congrats on a job well done!!!
This is my personal favorite. Just because it looks so cool! The picture is so well done that you can even see our fingers reflecting in the screen which adds that much more depth. So I gotta give props to our graphic designer on this one. Way to go Ralf!
Everyone join with me on giving Laplink a round o’ applause on this one. Or maybe you don’t want to clap because you don’t like it. Anyone, anyone?
Good thing that lappy has a strong battery. Without it we wouldn’t have been able to charge one of our team member’s car and he probably would’ve had to sleep at the office… Thanks Lappy!!!
Okay okay, you got me… It didn’t actually charge the car. But the special effects are so rad that it kinda looks like it did right? Most Laplink peeps liked this picture the best out of all our pictures from last year, you agree?
