Infographic: Lawyers and Mobile Devices

Infographic: Lawyers and Mobile Devices

Here’s a cool infographic I received from Easy Legal Billing, that talks about how lawyers use mobile devices. I see a couple bits of information to highlight: First, mobile devices increase work hours and client expectations, but decrease sustained reading. This factoid tells me that if you’re going to be using a mobile device, you better…

Today, Google announced the availability of Google Apps Vault to all Google Apps customers. According to Google, “Google Apps Vault helps protect organizations of all sizes from lawsuits by enabling organizations to find and preserve email messages that may be relevant to a particular lawsuit.

Congratulations iPhone J.D.

Although iPhone J.D., Jeff Richardson, espouses the technology I consider all things evil, I do enjoy hearing how an inferior system functions. In fact, when Jeff first started blogging, I may have owned an Apple product and advocated its use. Today, Jeff marks 4 years of blogging under his assumed alias. As anyone knows who actually blogs on…

Weekly News Round Up: What You May Have Missed in the World of Android

The big news this week is that HTC and Apple have kissed and settled their differences. This won’t mean the patent battles are over, it just means that Apple will use the agreement in its war with Samsung. That fight looks like it will continue for awhile.

Weekly News Round-up: What You May Have Missed in the World of Android

Good news Apple fans, September 12 looks like the release date for iOS 6 and the new iPhone. Too bad Android already does most of the things your new iPhone will. What’s more, it looks like Samsung will exact its revenge once Apple releases an LTE iPhone. Better not get too addicted to 4G LTE,…

The Droid Lawyer Vacation: Day 5

I finally finished, or should I say nearly finished, the response brief I’ve been working on. Aside from some minor use of a laptop to create a PDF, I created the entire brief using my Android tablet, sans bluetooth keyboard no less. The thing I learned is that tablets are not for big projects. While…

How to: Change Your Email Signature in Android

Admit it, you’re one of those people who are committing the great sin of email signature laziness. I know who you are because I get an email from you with the post-script, “Sent from my                                          phone.” Having an…

How Google Might Change the Office Magazine

How Google Might Change the Office Magazine

There isn’t a dentist, doctor, or lawyer’s office that doesn’t have a smattering of old magazines cluttering up the waiting area. Okay, for you literalists, I’m sure there’s an office somewhere devoid of magazines, but I can’t think of any.

Android Lawyer App Review: WestlawNext

Android Lawyer App Review: WestlawNext

I’m pretty sure those of us who graduated law school in the age of technology, injected ourselves with the Westlaw and LexisNexis “crack” in our law school experience. If you didn’t, you’re too old to remember digitized legal research (cue the “I walked 10 miles” comments), or you’re probably like one of my curmudgeon teachers who…

Speed Up Your Typing with SwiftKey 3

Speed Up Your Typing with SwiftKey 3

One of the things I hate about the native Android keyboard is that it’s rather obtuse when it’s required to think. The native keyboard lacks reliable predictability features. Therefore, I hustle at the chance to shed away any traditional settings and grab the latest and greatest keyboard. Right now, that keyboard is SwiftKey 3. You…
