30% of attorneys in the U.S. are using an iPad per the 2012 ABA Tech Survey performed by the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center. Lawyers are seeing real value in the iPad, it’s not only lighter than a laptop, but also a more efficient and organized way to receive and review news and information.
According to the survey, as reported by O'Keefe, most of the lawyers who use tablets (86%) bought them themselves rather than getting them from their firms.
At Futurelawyer, Rick Georges reviews a new book, E-Discovery for Small Cases, saying, "This great new book highlights many of the ways that you can do a competent job of ediscovery without breaking the bank."
Here are two posts from other weblogs worth reading:
"Review: TranscriptPad -- review and manage depositions on your iPad," by Jeff Richardson at iPhone J.D. Richardson reviews a new $50 iPad app called TranscriptPad, an app dedicated to the task of reviewing depositions. "With TranscriptPad on my iPad, I'm actually looking forward to the next time I have to review a bunch of depositions, and I don't believe I've ever said that before."
"CCCleaner - Clean House Today," by Rick Georges at Future Lawyer. Georges writes, "CCCleaner is a free software tool that will clean up your registry, erase files you no longer need, remove history, cookies and temporary files."
Says Kevin O'Keefe: "Though Google Plus is still in its infancy, I suggest you try it out. Google Plus is here to stay and some of the people you'll want to network with as a lawyer are going to be using Google Plus."
O'Keefe's comment comes at the end of a long post in which he gives his "first impressions" of Google Plus. Follow the link and read the whole thing.
