WIN WIN WIN

Guess what?? Remember that little laptop giveaway we had going a few months ago? Well… As you know it was pretty awesome and apparently you and I aren’t the only ones that think so. Some pretty cool people at the Internet Advertising Competition thought it was cool too because they awarded us with the Best Computer: Software Social Media Campaign for 2010. Isn’t that amazing?? You can see details about results and stuff here. AND, look at the press release HERE.

This contest would not have been nearly as amazing if we didn’t have awesome fans like you, so thank you thank you thank you!

More good news! We are in final preparations to run ANOTHER contest. The prize for this one will be the FAMOUS laptop from last year’s giveaway. You remember it; it was the one that was in all of those hilarious and great looking pictures we posted every day(Hint: The one in the picture over there). The chance to win it will be yours, so get your fingers warmed up and your Facebook®/Twitter® accounts ready to go. We will have a run date soon so be prepared!

What’s Taking So Long?

Is this you?

You have been an avid PC user for years, but decided it was time to see what all the Mac hype is about. After the purchase you got it all set up, turned it on, and instantly felt lost. You looked at your PC wondering, “How can I ever use my Mac? Everything I need is on my PC…” So you turned the Mac of, and went back to work on your PC.

My guess is that with many PC to Mac “converts” it takes a significant amount of time to make the jump because who has the time to manually transfer all of your data over? And we all know how lame it is when you buy something and it takes a long time before you can really enjoy it.

Well PC to Mac converts, worry no more. We just released Laplink Switch & Sync™ “The Easiest Way to Switch & Sync from PC to Mac!”

With Laplink Switch & Sync, moving from PC to Mac is simple. Just install the software on both machines, connect them, follow the easy-to-use wizard and all of your files, folders, contacts, emails and calendars will be automatically converted and moved from your PC to your Mac. Yes, I said it, even emails, contacts and calendars! Switch & Sync works with Windows Mail, Outlook 200 and later and Outlook Express 6 and later to convert all of your data over to a Mac email platform such as Apple Mail and Entourage. This is a feature you can’t find elsewhere!

I know what you are thinking, “But I still want to keep my PC and use them both.” I am two steps ahead of you. Switch & Sync not only helps you MOVE from PC to Mac, it will also sync the computers together so you can use them in tandem.

Hard Drive Hero

Laplink has solved another major problem that technology advancements have created, it goes by the name of PCmover Image Assistant, and we just released it. To date disk imaging software has fallen short. As technology has advanced, more operating systems (Including Windows 7) have arrived. When Windows 7 was released and integrated into nearly every new PC on the market, everyone’s old disk images were rendered useless. This is because if you use imaging software to restore say an XP image to a Windows 7 PC, the software will overwrite your new OS with the old one making your purchase a complete waste of money (Who wants to explain that to their spouse?…). Not to mention, you have now lost all of your programs, files and settings on the new PC. PCmover Image Assistant solves this dilemma and will calm the worries of many PC users. Continue reading
