New LogMeIn Pro Helps Bridge Mac/PC Divide

Boot Camp feature for Friday, March 19, 2010

Use a Mac and a PC? LogMeIn Pro aims to bridge the divide. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. LogMeIn has won legions of fans over the years for its software and service that allows people to connect and control one computer....from another. There's a free version that lets you have basic control. The paid version, LogMeIn Pro, adds features and the latest version helps to bridge the gap between Macs and PCs in a mixed home or office. VP Andrew Burton...

"It's a new offering and it extends our previous free offering to include one, the ability to transfer files and folders. The ability to share your desktop. Or the ability to print."

The price...about 70 dollars a year. LogMeIn also makes an iPhone app...called Ignition...to let you access your Mac or Windows machine on the go....and an Android version is in the works. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
