How About Both?  Android O feature spotlight: Custom shortcuts can now be added to the lockscreen via System UI Tuner. Many of you are still styling Android Marshmallow, or Version 6.1. Some of us have newer Google phones, and have Android Nougat, Version 7.1.2, as I have with my Nexus 6P, subscribed to the Beta program. But, later this year, I will be getting Android O, which will add features to the best mobile operating system. I am looking forward to the ability to add quick start icons to the lock screen; but, it is a safe bet that the new operating system will bring Android phones to the next level. You can still get Nexus 6P phones, and they will be at the top of the heap for at least another year.           Related StoriesNexus 6P - Still The BossYou Don't Need A Phone If You Have An LG Watch SportIPhone?

I never understood why BigLaw hid the law blogs of its partners and associates inside the firm's web page. It seemed a little like creating a firm brochure in the old days that highlighted an area of the firm's practice, and stacking the brochures on the library conference table. Sure, some clients and others would see the brochures during conferences and depositions; but, it wasn't a great way to get the firm's message out there. I can understand BigLaw's need for control. We don't our lawyers establishing an independent identity, do we? They might leave and take clients with them. The horror? In fact, firm loyalty and firm relationships are the best indicator of whether a lawyer will leave the firm. Some days, I remember "WhyIAmASolo".          Related Stories#WhyIAmASolo - I Don't Need A BYOD Policy ManualStop What You Are Doing And Watch This PresentationLet There Be No Confusion  [...]

The SmartWatch movement is about to become a tsunami. When the luxury brand designers start making them, it is a safe bet that SmartWatches are becoming mainstream. The fact that some people will always be willing to spend a lot of money on a watch that is more jewelry and fashion statement than practical tool will propel the Movado, Tommy Hilfiger, and other designers to replace the guts of their designs with Android Wear. Android Wear 2.0 is now powerful enough to make the designs functional, and will propel watch buyers and collectors to put them on their wrists. For geeks, we will be perfectly happy to continue to wear our inexpensive Smartwatches, which are just as functional. We are the people who have worn Timex and Casio watches in a world filled with Rolexes. All power to the people.            [...]

Don't Fly Your Drone Over This Guy's Property

The rise of commercial and hobby drones has revived an area of law that is unclear. How high do your property rights go? A 1946 decision said that they go 83 feet. There have been cases about blocking of light and view by tall buildings. But, if a drone pilot can't fly his drone over private property at all, then drones lose any practical use. In this case, the lawyers asked for a Federal Court to issue a Declaratory Judgment whether the "DroneSlayer" had the right to shoot down the plaintiff's drone; but, the Court dismissed for lack of jurisdiction, asserting that the claim belonged in State Court, with the cause of action being trespass. So, drone rights remain cloudy, with a chance of shotgun showers. Be careful where you fly your drone.          Related StoriesFutureLawyer And His FlockAncient Statue Found In Cairo Slums - Is It Ozymandias?Retiring To Margaritaville...What Could Go Wrong?  [...]
