CompanionLink Pro Competition Results

Posted by Harry On June - 1 - 2010ADD COMMENTS

Two weeks ago, we posted a CompanionLink Review, and about a Competition, which was very kindly offered by CompanionLink themselves.

The results from the competition were very interesting, as 29 (22.8%) of you are using Outlook 2010, with 9 (7.1%) planning on upgrading, and 54 (42.5%) on Outlook 2007. You could see that our whole community are quite early adopters, as there was no-one using Outlook 2002, or 97, and just one person (0.8%) still running Outlook 2000.

Going to phones, there were just four (3.1%) of you using Android, 12 (9.4%) using an iPhone,16 (12.6%) using a BlackBerry, and 14 (11%) using a Windows Mobile phone. Interestingly, 11 people (8.7%) said that they do not own a phone.

These were really interesting results, and the three (randomly selected) winners have had their license keys e-mailed to them. Thanks to everyone who participated!

So you spend a lot of time searching the net.  Most of us do and with Google Chrome, searching is a breeze  You just type your query into the address bar and your preferred search engine will do the rest.

But what if you search a specific site and do so frequently?  Instead of searching for “Mintywhite” and then clicking the images tab on google.com for example, we can assign Google Images its own keyword.

Not only site improvements, but also things you’d like us to feature.

This weeks winner is:


Suggestion:A clear and concise explanation about RAM. A lot of my co-workers are clueless about what it is, what it does, and why upgrading is simple.

The jurors, commented:
Bert has made a well thought out suggestion, which is exactly what we were looking for.
