ABA TECHSHOW 2015 | 60 Android Apps in 60 Minutes. This morning I, along with Dan Siegel and Jeff Taylor, will be presenting our favorite Android apps. Each of us has chosen 20 favorites, and we will be showing each of them in a fast paced segment of TechShow. I will be publishing them at FutureLawyer next week for those of you who aren't able to attend. Android on.
Will be presenting in a few minutes about the use of wearable tech in the modern law practice. We will cover everything from Smart Watches to Wireless Earsets to virtual reality headsets and necklaces and rings. I will be posting the slides
Dynamic Watch Face - Android Apps on Google Play.One of the things I love about Smart Watches and the Android Wear platform is that you can change watch faces any time you want to. i have cusgomized my Moto 360 and other Android Wear watches to brand them as FutureLawyer watches, and control the ambient light, and power, date, time and other settings. Very cool. Very Android.
Apple Watch In-Store Purchases Delayed Until June (Report). Scratch April 24th off of the calendar if you want an Apple Watch. While I love that the interest in the Apple Watch is sparking interest in wearables, it looks like you will have to wait until June to buy one of your own. As this article points out, there are a lot of alternatives out there, and Android Wear appears to be gaining ground and becoming more functional.. Pick your poison; but if you want to eat he forbidden fruit of the Apple tree, you have to wait some more.
Fastcase. I spent some time at the FastCase booth today, and spoke with Mike, who regaled me with tales of law firms saving thousands of dollars by switching to FastCase for legal research online. The Florida Bar provides free access to FastCase's Florida case database as part of the Bar Dues, and I upgraded to all Fifty States for $195 a year. Yes, you read that right. Case law from all of the States for less than the price of a decent restaurant dinner. Coupled with the free access provided by Google Scholar, it is all the research you will ever need. I love that there is an Android app, which gives me access to every case everywhere on my phone or tablet.
ABA TECHSHOW 2015 | Taste of TECHSHOW 2015. Jeff Taylor and I are hosting a dinner tonight at the Seven Lions restaurant in Chicago. TechShow participants get to bend our ears about all things Android, and we don't mind. Android lawyers are a definite minority; but, if Jeff and I have our way, there will be a lot of Apple converts.
