Summer contest

One guess and the VSO license of your choice could be yours!

With one heat wave just over, and no doubt a few more coming up this summer, we’ve had  a water fountain installed in the office!  Yay!!

For environmental reasons, we use our own cups, but for visitors, there are a few plastic cups available. Will you guess how many cups in total are stacked up in the picture below?

 

Send us your estimation (use the form below) and you may win one of the five VSO licenses we’re giving away!

The 5 people that guess the right number (or are closest to it) will get to choose the VSO program of their choice for free (excluding Goldmember)!

The contest is now over! There were 31 cups in the water cooler.

Congratulations to the 5 winners!

Father’s day is coming!

Father’s Day is fast approaching and you have no idea what to get your dad?

 

Forget ties and socks, here are some very cool ideas for the geek and TV addict fathers!

A remote control pillow (yes, it really works!!) ! We’re not saying your dad is lazy or anything, but isn’t the gift of not having to get up from the couch to get the remote control the best gift of all?

 

A Breaking bad doormat. For the series fans who want to show who’s boss!

 

A VPN subscription. Ah, the gift of security and peace of mind…! Being able to secure internet connections and one’s identity on the net is simply priceless nowadays!… Get your dad a 1,6 or 12 months subscription to Hide My Ass, one of the best VPN service on the market (approved by VSO!)

 

A light saber set of keys . This is not some boring key chain: look closer… Yep, those keys are actually cut into a light saber. No need to use the Force to open doors! Works on Kwikset and Schlage brands.

 

A zombie back scratcher. Because…… well, it’s just awesome!!! Actually I might get one for myself too!!

 

If your father is a bit more classy and likes his Martinis “shaken, not stirred”, then he deserves those James Bond cufflinks

 

Get your dad to explore the uncharted territory of the swimming pool sitting in this Star Trek pool chair!

 

If your dad likes fishing, then this smart fish finder  from That sweet gift is a must-have! No more time wasted, let technocology find out if there’s fish around or not  with this app + sonar!

 

Your father still has these old cassette tapes lying around? Why not get him a cassette to  Mp3 converter so he can convert his old music or recordings into MP3? And get rid of those tapes for good!

And finally, why of course, the best gift of all: a software from VSO! Very easy to use, but with outstanding quality, it’s the perfect gift even if your father is not computer savvy!

For instance our great  video to DVD conversion software, ConvertXtoDVD! Let your dad enjoy his videos on the big screen!

Or our VSO Downloader Ultimate, to retrieve almost any videos that he’ll find on the internet!

Like this guide? Share it around to make sure you get what you really want, if you’re a dad yourself!

Create a Romantic Movie Night

Don’t have a big budget or don’t want to make a big effort on  Valentine’s Day but still want to impress your loved one? We’ve got you covered!

Here is how to create the ultimate romantic movie night in your living room!

First of all, stage your living room for the occasion and create a special atmosphere: candles, lights,  scattered red rose petals or confetti hearts sprinkles… And why not create a cozy blanket fort ?

Show how much you love her/him with a custom card, or special attentions scattered around the house:

Next, food! You can’t go wrong with a heart shaped pizza! (Simply order a regular pizza and cut a heart shape into it). Also works with burgers!!

Don’t compromise on the essential popcorn but make it special, Valentine’s way.

And finally, there’s no escaping a good old romantic movie!  Take your pick from the list below, click on the title to access the streaming website and use your VSO Downloader to download the movie onto your PC. Then use ConvertXtoDVD to convert and burn it to DVD and watch it on the big screen! (both programs have a 7 day full and free trial)

 

When Harry Met Sally 

Pride and Prejudice

 

Love Story

 Pretty Woman 

 Breakfast at Tiffany’s 

Sleepless in Seattle

Crazy, Stupid, Love 

The Notebook 

Love Actually  

 Casablanca 

Ghost

Notting Hill   

And of course, don’t forget the tissues!
