Christmas Giveaway Day 12: CrashPlan

Peace of mind is a nice thing to have — in all areas of life. When it comes to your computer and digital media, this is no different. And with all of our pictures and videos of our children and families being stored on digital media, it’s so vital to ensure you’re taking care of your memories.

That’s where a tool like CrashPlan can help.

Update: And we’ve got more winners. Congrats to the four following folks for the memberships to CrashPlan:

  • Jesse Read
  • Joe Casabona
  • Bruno Moniz
  • Jerry (@parasight)

Thanks for playing gents — and enjoy the peace of mind!

About CrashPlan

Created to take the pain of backing up off your shoulders, CrashPlan is both a desktop client and a web based application. The desktop client is free and allows you to automatically backup your machine to an external drive or another computer.

Make sure all those Christmas photos are safe and secure.

Make sure all those Christmas photos are safe and secure.

Or, for a reasonable monthly fee, you can sync your backups to CrashPlan Central, their online backup service. And the desktop client works for all platforms — Mac, Windows and Linux.

And today we’ve giving away 4 free unlimited one year subscriptions to this great tool.

How to Enter

How can you win one of these subscriptions? Simply follow both webappstorm and crashplan on Twitter. Then let us know you want to win! The winners will be announced at the end of the day!

And a big congratulations to our winners from Day 11 — enjoy Carbonmade!

And Over at Mac.AppStorm: Times

Don’t forget to check out what’s going on over at Mac.AppStorm! Today they’re giving away a few copies of Times.

Times is a re-think of how people use and read news on their computer. Instead of treating news like email (as most RSS readers do), Times presents you with headlines and photos from a variety of sources all in one place.

Come Back for Day 13

It doesn’t stop here. The giving continues each day until our grand finale on the 24th. Tune in each day for the newest prize and keep up to date with our RSS feed or Twitter account.
