CompanionLink now enables sync with Windows Live and Windows 8

Posted by Harry On January - 2 - 2012Comments Off on CompanionLink now enables sync with Windows Live and Windows 8

I have previously blogged here about CompanionLink, and I have been given some exciting news from them – they have confirmed with me that Windows 8 is now compatible.

It also syncs with Windows Live now as well, so it can connect to your Windows Phone.

CompanionLink are constantly adding new devices to sync with your contacts, for example the new Amazon Kindle Fire. They have also provided me with a promotional code, SYNCKINDLE, so that CompanionLink for Google is just $39.95.

Update to Tsohost Hosting Competition

Posted by Harry On May - 9 - 20114 COMMENTS

The competition, ran with the help of Tsohost, has now expired. The following people have won and will be contacted by Tsohost soon:

  • Lise Caron
  • Allen Adamson
Congratulations Lise and Allen!

Last year I wrote a review on CompanionLink Professional v3 and CompanionLink gave us three licenses of CompanionLink Professional (worth $99.95), as well as their RunStart installation service (worth $39), which three lucky Windows Guides readers won.

Recently, CompanionLink have released their version 4 edition of their software, which I must say I love more than v3! I have posted an updated review here.

Very kindly, CompanionLink have given us three licenses of CompanionLink Professional and their RunStart installation service for three lucky Windows Guides readers again!

To enter, all you have to do is visit this survey by Sunday the 15th of May (11:59PM BST) and answer the questions on the survey. We’ll then enter you into our competition, and you could win.

Email addresses will be kept private (as always) however we will share the three winners’ details with CompanionLink for obvious reasons.

You can also download a 14-day free trial over at the CompanionLink website, by clicking here.

CompanionLink v4 is better than ever before!

Following my post on creating a WordPress site, I contacted Tsohost who have very kindly given us two free Pro cPanel subscriptions for a year (worth £50 / about $85 each) on their lightning-fast servers for two lucky readers! The instructions for creating a WordPress site were created on one of these cPanel servers, so they will be the same. Tsohost have wonderful customer service as well (replies in minutes) just in case there are any problems!

Have you ever wondered what powers MintyWhite.com, or wanted to try and make a site as brilliant and interactive as this one? A great open source web tool, called WordPress, ‘runs’ the virtual side of the site and provides you with all the great content that you’re seeing on your screen today!
