It's Not the Smartphone but the Display, Stupid

2013-08-28T00:35:11-04:00

Larger touch-screen displays lead revenue growth in the smartphone display market, according to the "Quarterly Mobile Phone Display Shipment and Forecast Report," by NPD DisplaySearch. Mobile phone display revenues are expected to reach $33.3 billion by the end of 2012, a 55 percent increase over last year. Larger smartphone displays that maintain high mobility will command revenue. According to NPD, the AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) is expected to take the lead over low-temperature PolySilicon, thin-film transistor liquid-crystal displays or LTPS TFT LCDs. Samsung's Galaxy S4 uses a five-inch, 1920 x 1080-pixel AMOLED and Apple outfits the iPhone 5 with...



AccessData: "Show Me the Money"

2013-03-21T02:47:42-04:00

AccessData, an e-discovery, cybersecurity, and digital forensics provider, has raised $45 million, for its first funding in the 26-year history of the company. First in 26 years? Show me the money: The investment includes a $20 million equity trade from Sorenson Capital and $25 million in structured debt from Silicon Valley Bank. According to officials, the funding is designed to "reduce outside ownership and add Sorenson as a strategic, long-term partner." Take the money & run: Prior to AccessData's fund raiser, Wolters Kluwer Corporate Legal Services (CLS), a legal content, process, and business peformance management provider, divested itself of the...

Thomson Reuters and BlumbergExcelsior Get Their Forms Together

2012-11-06T13:06:00-05:00

Thomson Reuters and BlumbergExcelsior signed on October 25 a strategic licensing agreement that adds more than 230 Blumberg New York forms to Westlaw Form Builder. I was obviously too busy planning my Halloween costume (W. Rabbit) to be bothered at the time. I will be catching up with this and other news now that I've had my fill of candy and Sandy has run its course over New York. The list of New York forms now available in Form Builder cover several practice areas including litigation, real estate, landlord-tenant and powers of attorney. The Blumberg forms will be added to...

Although the new mobile version doesn't contain the full features of the desktop version of Case Evaluator, the mobile code has been designed to...

HP Fight With Oracle More About Tech Than Contract

2012-09-11T18:09:15-04:00

After Oracle announced that it would stop developing new versions of its software on Itanium microprocessors, Hewlett-Packard Corp. sued Big Red for breach of contract in Santa Clara County Superior Court (Hewlett-Packard v. Oracle, 111 CV 203163). The crux of the matter was whether version 12c of the Oracle database due out in early 2013 would be available on HP's Integrity servers built on Intel's Itanium architecture (IA64). Judge James P. Kleinber recently ruled that Oracle has a contract to continue porting its software to Itanium computers for as long as HP sells Itanium computers. Focus on "sells" and keep...



Libraries are investment banks, not cost centers

2012-07-25T09:00:00-04:00

Gregory Castanias, Jones Day partner in charge of library global services, read Dewey & LeBoeuf's bankruptcy filing and found among the top unsecured creditors that accompanied the firm's first-day bankruptcy filing was tangible proof of the central importance of library services to the existence of law firms, and just how substantial firms' economic relationships with their vendors of legal research products are.



Is it time for a free e-book on law school applications?

2012-07-18T12:43:00-04:00

There is a time for everything, along with a location. It may, however, be a good time to put the law school experience on the back burner. Unless of course there is a school that is willing to pay you to attend for three years, which is quite possible given the dismal outlook for law school education. Indeed, university cash cows are now grazing in technology and biotechnology. But if you're looking forward to law school regardless of the economic climate, someone has to write those patent applications, right? Stay focused on things, e.g., the LSAT, that will take you...



LegalTech West Coast Went on Without Me

2012-06-09T12:17:15-04:00

LegalTech West Coast went on without me this year. But I was able to see what was new here and there while I was in New York covering our Law Technology News desk. A better way to say that is, "while I was in New York, covered by the LTN news desk." Because there is certainly a lot to see from our New York operation, which seems to go on all day long, and well into the night. Probably the best news to come out of the show was delivered by LTN's Associate Editor, Michael Roach, who was at the...



Sherpa Software Unveils 'Report Attender'

2012-06-09T03:43:05-04:00

Pittsburgh, Pa.-based Sherpa Software, an e-discovery and information management software and services provider, announced the release of a new data analysis tool for litigation support, called Report Attender. The new tool is designed to search and report on an organization's data assets to give decision-makers the ability to make critical decisions when litigation is imminent. Report Attender analyzes the content of data stores and assesses the "age, size and substance of email messages and other files," according to the company. The new software is installed on-site and automatically scans data stores, gathering key statistics and categorizing files and messages from...



Google on P3P Privacy: Impractical to Provide Modern Web Functionality

2012-02-21T10:12:54-05:00

Quote from Google Senior VP of Communications and Policy Rachel Whetstone in a statement e-mailed to Ars Technica: "It is well known -- including by Microsoft -- that it is impractical to comply with Microsoft’s [Internet Explorer privacy policy] request while providing modern web functionality." Translation: Google can't provide value-ad (read: income-generating advertisement) services and maintain your privacy in web surfing.



Clio Announces Beta for Document Automation

2012-02-11T10:10:32-05:00

Clio, the online practice management software provider, announced beta software features for document automation. In effect, you can create a template with merge codes, or Clio tags, and use information on a matter, e.g., client, case number, to automatically fill the tags in your document with data. See Catherine Hillier's post on "How to Create a Document Template" in Clio. For online practice management systems, this is an extension of the document automation that has already been at work creating custom invoices for billing. Now it has been extended to put more of your data to work to create documents,...



Legal Hold Pro Adds Collection Tracking Feature

2012-02-10T00:54:11-05:00

Legal Hold Pro added a collection tracking feature designed to enhance preservation, aka legal hold, work flows. After a notification is sent to a custodian, there are a number of other steps an entity should take to make sure evidence is preserved, e.g., suspend auto-deletion in an email archive or records management system. With the new feature, Legal Hold Pro allows managers to take additional steps to preserve evidence and record the action and its results. The new feature incorporates project management functionality to define numerous, detailed tasks, assign resources, and report on task progress. So hold managers can monitor...



Recommind Axcelerate eDiscovery 4.3

2012-02-08T20:38:11-05:00

With all the news at LegalTech New York, it is easy to miss something. Actually, it's pretty easy to miss a lot of things. For example, Recommind, a provider of predictive information management software and primarily responsible for creating a stir over "predictive coding," released Axcelerate eDiscovery version 4.3. Axcelerate eDiscovery consists of two licensed products: Axcelerate ECA & Collection and Axcelerate Review and Analsis. New features in Axcelerate aim to make the collection process shorter, simpler, and faster and make the review process more efficient via simplified workflows. The new features include: one-step collection with enhanced indexing and storage...



Who'da Thought? An iPhone App That Saves Lives

2012-02-07T23:11:41-05:00

An iPhone app, PulsePoint, marshals a community resource in its CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)-trained citizens to respond to victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Who would have thought of that? Chief Richard Price of the San Ramon Valley, Calif., Fire Dept., that's who. The civic-minded Fire Chief's location-aware app is free and may only come at a cost if it is not deployed. And that cost may be lives lost due to cardiac arrest. If the cardiac emergency is in a public place, the location-aware app will alert CPR-trained citizens in the vicinity of the need for assistance and simultaneous dispatch advanced...



What Was the 'Coolest' Thing at LegalTech New York?

2012-02-04T12:50:21-05:00

Shortly after LegalTech New York, a colleague asked me about the "coolest" thing I saw at the show. Still suffering a bit from "product" shock, I could not recount anything that knocked my socks off after covering some of the new products at 2012 International CES and covering MacWorld iWorld in San Francisco, especially j5create's Worm Hole. But then again, legal technology is not designed to get my feet bare, but help accomplish litigation strategy, client needs, and manage matters and the business of law. And like previous shows, LegalTech 2012 had plenty to see from e-discovery and computer forensics...



MacWorld iWorld at the Moscone Center in S.F.

2012-01-29T22:44:23-05:00

I stopped in at MacWorld iWorld last Saturday at the Moscone Center before traveling to LegalTech New York. Since I was not hunting for luggage to tote some iOS device or looking for an innovative way to recharge Apple hardware, the pickings were slim. Although I was impressed with Joos Orange, a solar-powered device to recharge your mobile devices. With up to 12 hours of exposure to the sun, the Joos product can transfer up to 8 hours of charge over USB. The charger can also retain its ingested solar power in a replaceable lithium-ion polymer battery (20Wh/5400mAh). And here's...



Rocket Matter Adds Document Automation to Online Practice Management Software

2012-01-25T18:17:32-05:00

Rocket Matter released version 2 of its practice managment software. After reviewing Business Integrity software and working with Korbitec's Ghostfil software, I believe successful document automation and assembly modules in online practice management applications that use Microsoft Word templates will be successful if developers can expose as much relevant client and matter content in default codes to merge with Office templates, insert the templates on pages that can, from the context, immediately populate the templates without additonal processing (e.g., matter or client pages), allow for the creation of unlimited merge codes for rich template creation, and integrate time and billing...



Crashing MacWorld iWorld

2012-01-25T17:51:40-05:00

I stopped in to pick up my media badge at MacWorld iWorld (Mascone Center) this morning and viewed some of the new-to-market products that were advertised on the first-looks wall, a lineup of posters on display near the registration area. There I saw a number of products I will investigate further during the show: Byte Squared (booth 818) makes Office2 (booth 818), which is the all-in-one office document editing suite on iOS devices. Blue Microphones (booth 413), which manufacture microphones for iOS devices. Studio Six Digital (booth 818), which makes an audio test and measurement app that includes an iAudioInterface2...



Unpacking News at 2012 International CES

2012-01-15T13:31:14-05:00

There is good reason to attend, follow, or take a lead in the 2012 International CES. Advancements in consumer electronics and gaming can impact technology in business and law. Take Ars Technica rumble at CES and imagine how you might object to paper-thin devices in computers that may produce a haptic effect in a courtroom video presentation. Although Microsoft claims it will reduce its presence at CES in the future, that may be more in body than spirit as the software giant hopes that Windows 8 and Phone operating systems will command consumer electronic devices.



Ricoh Rings In the New Year With New Imaging Systems

2012-01-05T18:51:06-05:00

Ricoh has come out with new multifunction imaging systems that copy, scan, print and fax. In the old days we used to call these systems multifunction printers or MPs. The Ricoh Aficio MP 2352, 2852, and 3352 all have walk-up features to scan and print from a USB drive or SD card in many file formats, including PDF, JPEG and TIFF. But if you can't walk up to the device, Ricoh's optional HotSpot printing application supports mobile printing from internet-enabled devices. The new MPs print speed ranges from 23 to 33 pages per minute and are Ricoh's first A3 monochrome...



Epson's New MegaPlex Home Theatre Projectors Can Go to Court Too

2011-12-12T09:39:40-05:00

New Epson MegaPlex projectors make a public spectacle of an app, pictures, presentation, movie, etc., on an Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod. Although David Pogue reviews the new projectors favorably in The New York Times as home theater projectors, they would also make good projectors for courtroom presentations. The new home theater projectors, Epson MegaPlex MG-50 ($699) and MG-850HD ($799), project high-resolutions of 540p (960 x 540 pixels per inch) and 720p (1280 x 800 ppi) in 2,200 and 2,800 lumens, respectively. In effect, your presentations will be in high definition for the court and the jury in dark or...



Epson Projects 3 New Projectors into the Market

2011-08-31T02:42:47-04:00

All three models deliver 2,600 lumens of color and white light output -– the VS210 (approximately $399) offers SVGA resolution, the VS310 (approximately $499) delivers XGA resolution, and the VS315W (approximately $599) provides WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution for users looking to leverage widescreen notebooks and high-definition content.

Hard Drive Shredder and a Real BlackBerry Killer

2011-08-31T01:52:22-04:00

One of the most important devices in my law office is an industrial-size shredder for paper and plastic such as credit cards and compact discs. Now I've got my eye on a relatively new shredder, Security Engineered Machinery's Model 0300 Jackhammer, which shreds hard drives and other electrical devices like cell phones, BlackBerry phones, PDAs, etc. The Jackhammer is designed for the office environment. It's frame sits 37 inches high, 45 inches wide, and 21 inches deep atop locking swivel casters. The shredder has hooked, sawtooth blades that claim to shred 125 to 500 drives per hour. Your mileage will...

Corel Simplifies PDF Tools

2011-08-18T21:44:33-04:00

The Portable Document Format has long been associated with Adobe, the company that created it. But the PDF standard is open, which means there is nothing to stop any software company from adopting it and creating any variety of new and interesting PDF tools, such as what Corel has done with PDF Fusion, says freelance writer Jason Krause. ...

Epson Has Two New USB Plug'n Play Projectors

2011-08-18T01:19:33-04:00

For those lawyers who are too busy to tangle with a projector in court or other setting, Epson has some good news. The new VS410 and VS350W multimedia projectors are affordable, project high-resolution images, and are easy to use. Both the VS410 and VS350W support USB 2.0, plug-and-play connections to Apple Mac and PC computers. There is no figuring out where S-Video or A-V cables interconnect devices. Although the bandwidth of USB 2.0 is not sufficient for high-definition video programming, the new VS-Series projectors will easily handle any presentation with less than full-motion video. The new projectors offer lawyers and...

2011-08-17T23:39:10-04:00

Recommind, a manufacturer of enterprise search and automatic categorization software, announced the release of Decisiv Email version 3.6, which now supports mobile devices and smartphones powered by Apple iOS, Google Android, and RIM BlackBerry.

Schueren admitted that the swank new quarters on California Street were quite...



Is It the Hardware, Stupid?

2011-08-17T23:32:14-04:00

For the last decade, we have seen a trend in which some manufacturers get out of the hardware business and focus on their core business: software and services. For example, IBM began edging itself out of the commodity hardware business when Big Blue sold its PC factories to Sanmina-SCI, its hard drive unit to Hitachi, and its PC group to Lenovo. And storage providers like EMC, which used to solely rely on hardware, are today revitalizing their businesses with software and services. For many software makers, putting together commodity hardware and bundling it with code is not cost-effective for the...



'Is Open Source Exploitative?'

2011-08-16T15:30:01-04:00

The techdirt post "Is Open Source Exploitative?" is worth sharing. Although extreme, it shows that the law can both effect and affect technology, which includes open source.



Harken Up for the Next Killer App

2011-08-16T11:15:47-04:00

When you have a meeting with partners, associates, even clients over the telephone, you take notes to capture the most important points. Then after the meeting you hang up the phone and the conversation goes away, with only your notes and memory remaining. This can be a faulty, untrusted system in your professional services to the law firm or to a client. But what if the conversation remained and you could hark back to only the most important parts of it?



Autonomy's Jack Halprin Expected to defect to Google

2011-08-12T15:12:12-04:00

Jack Halprin, who recently resigned from his post as Autonomy's vice president, e-discovery and compliance, is expected to land at Google to manage its electronically stored information, for both legal and information governance purposes, in its Apps/Postini wing, according to the 9TO5Google blog.

Halprin previously worked in e-discovery positions at both...



Epson Unveils New Artisan All-in-One Printers

2011-08-09T15:34:34-04:00

Last week I recently attended an Epson America event in San Francisco at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel that showcased new products. I almost didn't make it, because I walked by SF Chefs 2011 in progess at the Union Square. But I pressed on to see what was up and coming with Epson products. And I'm glad I did. ... [MORE]

2011-08-04T18:07:38-04:00

Security and Privacy Standards in Cloud Services
