SWITCHING FROM PC TO MAC

Laplink just came out with “Switch & Sync” which copies all files and folders from a PC to a Mac. This includes your documents, email, contact lists and calendars.

Ironically, not as many people are switching to the Mac. Apple’s Mac operating system had an all time high market share of 5.33 percent back in March. This has since declined to five percent in August.

Oddly enough, when we first started writing this column, 30 years ago, the Apple operating system’s market share ranged between five and six percent. In 30 years there has been no change. What then explains the huge growth in Apple’s sales? The increase has come from other products, primarily the iPhone and iPod, and now the iPad, which use their own operating systems.

Switch & Sync is $40 from laplink.com.
