CompanionLink now enables sync with Windows Live and Windows 8

Posted by Harry On January - 2 - 2012Comments Off

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.

TuneUp Shredder is one of the many utilites that comes with TuneUp Utilities 2012 (full review) and is automatically available* after you install TuneUp Utilities 2012 (trial) (aff)

Even after emptying the Recycle Bin, files can be retrieved from your hard disk until they are physically overwritten. If you want your files deleted, permanently, use TuneUp Shredder to completely remove traces of your files. Doing this is both useful and strongly recommended if:

  • You sell your PC
  • You sell your hard drive
  • You are returning a drive for warranty repair, replacement, or refund
  • You loan your PC to a friend and you’re not sure what you’ve deleted recently
  • Your PC is borrowed (school loaner, corporate laptop etc.)

Another giveaway offer from Modiac.

It seems their last giveaway on our site was so successful, that Modiac has set up a new giveaway offer.

From today and through November 1. 2011

Modiac Blu-ray ripper is regarded as the best conversion tool in the world, as  it can decrypt any Blu-ray discs and convert them into any kind of media format. Formats include: DVD, VCD, Mpeg4, AVI, MP4, MKV, WMA,  FLV, RMVB, etc.; popular consoles, such as Iphone, Ipad, Ipod, PS3, PSP, Wii,  NDS, and smartphones. It can also rip Blu-ray to all audio formats, such as DVD,  MP3, MP4, M4A, WMA, WAV, AC3, and DTS. More formats will be added in the future  as development continues.Now we at Mintywhite give you this unique opportunity to get a copy of this great software for absolutely nothing. Yes you read correctly, FREE!


Due to my little “mishap” on this post yesterday, there has been a slight change in this giveaway. Modiac has kindly offered us both the Blu-Ray ripper and the video converter as a giveaway offer. Due to problems getting the license for the video converter to work we’ve postponed the giveaway for that product, giving you the blu-Ray Ripper free of charge. Thank you for your patience.

Sparklines – What’s that ?
