PC Migration Tool Laplink – PCmover Professional @laplink

Laplink PCmover Pro

Moving data from one computer to another is a very tedious job and can take days. Even after painstaking effort, we tend to miss some of our data and end up regretting it later. To put an end to this hassle Laplink’s PCmover Professional comes in handy.

PCmover can connect using various methods like a network (both wired and wireless), USB, and Easy Transfer cable. PCmover must be installed on both PCs to transfer data. The software transfers files, personal settings, and keeps your installed applications in pristine order by just reinstalling them on the new PC.

Since PCmover keeps your installed files intact, this tool is especially useful if you are migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8.

Most of the work is done on the source PC. After connecting to the destination PC, it allows the user to map the destination folder. PCmover successfully migrates your life from an old PC to a new one hassle-free. The software is made up of useful data migration tools, and Laplink also provides free transfer support and technical help 24/7. The transfer wizard is very user friendly, making this a great product for migration.

There are three migration options in PCmover: migration from an old PC to new a PC, in-place upgrade from an old OS to a new OS, and migration from an image created by the source PC on a removable drive.

While PCmover has many great features, it’s important to note that not all applications are compatible. Certain applications and hardware information will need to be transferred manually.

This is a great piece of software if you plan to upgrade or migrate to a new PC or OS. Just set it and forget it, and let PCmover do the rest.

The PizzaRev-olution Heats Up in Pasadena

Build-Your-Own Pizza Concept, PizzaRev, Hosts May 1 Grand Opening to Benefit Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA

Pasadena, CA (April 24, 2014)To mark its entrance into Pasadena,PizzaRev, a growing build-your-own artisanal pizza concept, will host a “Pizzas for a Purpose” fundraising event on Thursday, May 1 at its new East Pasadena location. Guests are invited to “pay-what-you-want” for a custom-built, personal-sized pizza, with a suggested $8 donation. All proceeds from pizza sales will benefit the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA.

“PizzaRev is a passionate supporter of pet adoption organizations in every community where we operate, and the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA do exceptional work here in Pasadena,” said Irv Zuckerman, co-CEO of PizzaRev. “We’re excited to introduce PizzaRev to the Pasadena community and simultaneously support an organization that provides care for local abandoned and homeless animals.”

PizzaRev features a distinctive “Craft Your Own” pizza assembly process and its “Roman-style” thin & crispy pizza that has won a loyal following in the LA area. It starts with the crust selection, either original or gluten-free, each one pressed into a thin canvas from a plump, homemade dough ball. Guests then choose from four signature sauces, including a savory organic marinara, a creamy white alfredo, and a spicy-sweet BBQ. Finally, each personally-sized masterpiece is completed with favorite selections from an array of artisanal cheeses and 30+ fresh ingredients, ranging from traditional favorites like pepperoni and ground beef to premium selections including sweet fennel sausage, Kalamata olives, and fresh-picked basil and arugula. Each pizza, no matter how many ingredients are selected, costs just $7.99.

Most unique to PizzaRev, and what enables the restaurant’s unprecedented speed of service, is the custom-built, 900-degree stone hearth oven. Guests watch the dancing flames in the background as their pizzas are fired to a perfect, Roman-style crispiness in less than three minutes. With literally hundreds of millions of combinations to create, PizzaRev keeps guests coming back eager to try the latest creation they crave.

To further celebrate the opening of the new Pasadena restaurant, PizzaRev has launched a free-to-enter sweepstakes where five lucky guests will win “Free Pizza for a Year.” Guests can fill out an entry form at the Pasadena location or visit Full sweepstakes rules available here.

PizzaRev – Pasadena, located at 3455 Foothill Blvd (at Halstead Ave.), will also host a “Social Media Fan Appreciation Night” on Sunday, May 4 from 5-10pm. Anyone who “Likes” or “Follows” PizzaRev on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and shows their like/follow status via phone or print-out at the register will receive a free pizza.

Apple Stock Split 7 to 1 and Mutual Funds Holding Apple Stock @apple #applestock

If you were surprised by the Apple announcement of a stock spit you are not alone, even more surprising was the what the stock split was, at 7 to 1, that is the first time in 30+ years that a company on NASDAQ has split 7 to 1.

This split puts Apple stock within reach of many who cannot afford the $550+ price, and brings it down to the $80 range. The  7-for-1 stock split would be effective June 9.

We are excited by other great news coming from  Apple.

Apple exceeded earnings

Apple expanded its stock buy back by $30 billion, bringing the total to $90 billion in the stock buy back program.
