Mozy is proud to announce the winner of our Pathetic Presents competition. Conor Buckley won with the mismatched present he received from his wife.
“It was funny but a little disappointing to find out that I’d bought my wife a new MacBook for Christmas and only got some novelty boxer shorts in return,” says Conor. “But winning an iPad in Mozy’s competition really makes up for it! I think that Mozy’s great and now we’ll be able to use Mozy Stash to synchronise data between my prize and my wife’s Christmas present. Hopefully, that way, we’ll be more ‘in sync’ with our Christmas presents next year!”
Thanks to everyone who entered the competition. We had some truly great (awful?) entries – it’s a good job you guys have such a great sense of humour!
We’re sorry that we couldn’t make you all winners but, if you didn’t win the prize, we’d still love to give you a free gift in the form of our MozyHome Free accounts. Simply visit www.mozy.co.uk/home/free to download a free account.
We’ll be offering other chances to win with Mozy in the future so stay tuned!
According to recent research, we Brits received £2.4bn worth of unwanted presents over the Christmas break. That’s a lot of novelty socks, cheap perfume and tat with vague golfing allusions.
For those of you who feigned a smile of gratitude we reward you with two things:
1) The link to the Oxfam shop finder
2) The chance to swap your unwanted gift for a brand new iPad
That’s right, we want to give you the chance to get the gift you really wanted, simply by sending us a picture of the gift you got. So, before you send your unloved presents to the charity shop, email us a picture to email@example.com, tweet them to us @mozyuk or post them to our Facebook or Google+ pages. We’ll send out an iPad to the person we think is most deserving.
Check out our competition page for more info.
If you were one of the lucky ones, on the other hand, who’s already sitting pretty with the tablet of your dreams, we have a gift for you too!
For the whole of January, we’re offering 20.12% off of our annual and biennial subscriptions to MozyHome – giving you access to all of your backed-up files from your tablet.
So, no more memory sticks, cables or emailing yourself documents so you can see them on your tablet, just access them straight through the Mozy app.
Simply enter the promocode Mozy2012 at the checkout to get your 20.12% discount.
Happy New Year everyone!
It’s time to light the candles and cut the cake for mozy.co.uk and mozy.ie are celebrating their first birthdays!
That’s a year since Mozy launched a service based on:
- Local websites
- Local support teams
- Local data centres
- Local pricing
But we haven’t stood still over the past year! We now also have:
- An online support portal
- Mozy 2.0 for Windows and Mac
- 2xProtect for local and online backup
- 25% faster uploads
And there’s more on the way with:
- The Mozy app for iOS and Android
- An enhanced restore experience
- Synchronisation capabilities
To celebrate our first year in the UK and Ireland, we’re offering residents in the UK and Ireland a chance to win a year of Mozy protection for free.
All you have to do is follow @mozyuk on twitter and tweet and complete “@mozyuk Mozy is the 1 for me because…” between now and the end of May. At the end of the month, three winners will be chosen at random.
What do you have as your screensaver? Chances are, it’s a picture of you family. Most of us like the reminder as we flick from our email to a spreadsheet that we’re at work for a reason – to support our loved ones and pay for the good times that we can spend with them.
And those good times are reflected in the pictures. Holidays, first steps and birthdays are likely to feature heavily. But what if you lost the picture of that unmissable moment in time that you can never go back and capture again? If your only copy is on your computer, a bump to your hard drive or a spilt cup of coffee could wipe it out forever. And that’s where online backup comes in. Simple, automatic and secure protection of those memories forever.
To celebrate the UK’s unmissable moments, Mozy has teamed up with celebrity Mum, Denise Van Outen to find the best example of a picture that a parent couldn’t bear to be parted from.
To enter, just upload your photo of an unmissable moment with your child here and you could win a photography prize package worth £800, including a personalised HP laptop, digital photo frame, digital camera and an annual MozyHome online backup subscription to help keep those precious photos safe. All five remaining finalists will win a £140 runner-up prize which includes a digital photo frame and an annual MozyHome subscription.
The competition is open until the 5th of November and you can find all of the rules here.
Denise understands the issues only too well as a flood in her own home destroyed all her family snaps. So, as she records Betsy’s unmissable moments, she’s making sure that everything is backed up with Mozy. You can read all about Denise’s involvement with the contest in an exclusive interview in the Sunday Mirror.
Good luck with the competition – we look forward to seeing your entries!
