Have you ever been out and about and suddenly needed access to a document from your home PC, (that really important University assignment or that business deal to send to your boss) but you’re at the other end of town? Though there may be a lot of software to remotely access data on PCs and Macs while on the go, there’s one that you should use above all others: Parallels Access. In our contest, we are giving away 5 year-long subscriptions, worth 20 dollars each, for free!
