Yazsoft today announced an extensive Christmas giveaway — their “biggest one yet.” From December 1 to December 24, 2008, everyone has a chance to win 1 of 4 grand packages. No purchase is required to enter, and winners will be drawn randomly during the first week of January 2009. Entering is simple, just email Yazsoft with the subject line ‘Yazsoft Holiday Giveaway.’

Each Grand package will consist of:

  • 1 MacBook computer (MB467LL/A: 2.4GHz)
  • 1 LED Cinema Display 24 inch
  • 1 Apple iPhone (8GB)

It’s a fairly comprehensive set of prizes and, with entering as simple as sending an email, it’s definitely worth a shot. Obviously, the odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. As you’d expect, you can only enter once.

Users that purchase any Yazsoft product during the period of this giveaway will automatically get their entries doubled as a thank you. For example, if you purchase 1 license, you will get 2 entries in the giveaway (and so on). Their product line consists of Speed Download and ShareTool.

Speed Download is a download manager for Mac OS X, and ShareTool lets you access all of the Bonjour services on your home network from anywhere in the world, securely. We recently covered ShareTool in a review.

In addition to the giveaway, you can also save an additional 20% on all the above prices during December. All Speed Download 5.x and ShareTool 1.x updates are free, so you won’t need to pay to upgrade in the near future.

Good luck with the competition, and obviously let us know if you end up winning the MacBook and Display!

  1. I clicked on the email Yazsoft link in this blog entry and it started VMWare Fusion on my iMac!!! Why would you have a simple email link behave that way? I fully expected Mail.app to open up.

  2. Hi Tom – That’s very odd, but I can assure you it isn’t the site causing the problem. I think you must have Fusion set as the default email editor in Safari>Preferences?

  3. Not possible as I have FF set as my default browser and Mail.app is the default mail client. I actually only use VMWare Fusion to run one Windows app–Quicken since the Mac version just really blows.

  4. Hi, is there any place where to follow-up on the situation? There is nothing about this promo on their web site… or am I missing something?

  5. Is there any information about this subject in other languages?
