This is just a quick public service announcement that time is running out on your chance to win a free copy of Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac.

Recently Parallels launched a free iOS app that lets you remotely login to a Mac running Parallels from an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Since Parallels is designed to let you run Windows and Windows apps on a Mac, this means you can effectively run Windows software on an iOS device using Parallels.

The only catch is that while the mobile app is free, Parallels Desktop usually runs $79.99. But the folks at Parallels gave me a free copy to give away to a reader.

Check out the contest post for details on how to enter, but do it fast. The contest ends tonight at midnight.
