I’m here. Hot Momma is at home with Things 1-3. I rarely travel alone. I am a homebody. I like my bed. I don’t like cramming my fat ass in a tiny airplane seat. But walking through the airport I began thinking about my previous trips to this event and began to get excited. I […]

This is the scene after an associate attorney was rear ended by a tractor-trailer on a snowy turnpike. After his spinning car came to rest, he walked away. But his files were not so fortunate. See that piece of cardboard sticking out from where his trunk once was? That was a banker box full of […]

Mobile Timeslips on the iPad with iSlips

December 22, 2011

As I have discussed here before, it can be a pain keeping track of your billing in six minute increments. It is even more of a chore to keep track of time when you are on the go. Trying to go back and recreate a day or a week out of the office can be […]

April 12, 2011

Little did I know that TECHSHOW has quite an after-conference schedule filled with informal gatherings centered around food and drink. Or just drink, a lot of drink.

March 11, 2011

Last year I wrote about the iPad as a laptop replacement. While much of what I wrote still applies, especially the preference for viewing PDFs and photos on the iPad, I have noticed that the iPad has been an imperfect replacement for a laptop when it comes to text generation, e.g. legal documents or blog […]

Kids and iPads Can Coexist

December 22, 2010

The iPad has many fun and educational uses for kids. I loved letting my girls play with my iPad when I first got it. Then I noticed a tiny scratch on the edge of the screen and I became reluctant to let them use it without direct supervision. Yes it was a small scratch that […]

September 21, 2010

Lee Rosen of Divorce Discourse posted on reaching a breaking point in family law. One of the readers commented that having another practice area can help and Rosen commented that it would only work for lawyers smart enough to handle two practice areas. My response was as follows: I have never viewed it as being […]

Dr. Seuss on the iPad

August 18, 2010

As I have stated before, Dr. Seuss is a big hit at our house. Also, the iPad is a big hit at our house, and office, and on vacation, etc. Well, you can imagine my delight when I learned that these two things could be combined for a super fun reading experience for Thing 1 […]

The iPad as a Laptop Replacement

August 1, 2010

I bought an iPad two weeks ago. I had been considering the purchase since the product was announced and did a fair amount of research on the product so that I would know what I was getting. Plus I already have an iPhone so I am very familiar with the interface, and so are my […]

After You Clean Your Desk, Clean Your Office (and Your Computer)

May 19, 2010

Lawyerist.com seems to have a theme going. Today I read Improve Your Practice with an Uncluttered Office which also referenced the clean desk article I previously discussed. One point of the article is that clutter wastes time and the author states that “Even “paperless” offices can have computer clutter, making it difficult to find a […]
