Now Software Deal Eases Data Sharing

Send Article to a Friend

Now Software Deal Eases Data Sharing -- Although Apple offers integrated contact management and calendar features with Mac OS X in the form of Address Book and iCal, Tonya and I have stuck with Now Up-to-Date & Contact from Now Software because those programs are ideal for sharing contacts and events among multiple Macs (and with Windows-based PCs as well). But you do need separate copies of the program for each Mac, and that can add up. Through the end of May, however, Now Software is offering a major discount on the Classic (4.0.3), Mac OS X (4.5.2), and Windows (4.5.1) versions of the programs. If you're a registered user of Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.x, you can buy a second copy for $40 (regularly $130); if you don't yet own the programs, you can buy one copy for the full price and a second copy for the discounted price. The offer is good through 31-May-04 and is limited to one discounted version per valid registration number. [ACE]
