Xmarks | Bookmark Sync and Search

Xmarks

https://www.xmarks.com/

Often considered the number one bookmarks add-on on the market, Xmarks is built to be compatible with Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. The program can be downloaded in seconds. From there readers may begin backing up and synchronizing bookmarks in an intuitive and friendly template. In addition, Xmarks will sync bookmarks across computers, and, if desired, across different web browsers. While Xmarks is free for personal computer use, a premium version ($1 per month) is necessary for readers who want to sync with their iPhones, Blackberries, and Androids. Xmarks is the most popular bookmark sync add-on for a reason: it’s easy to use and convenient.

Robert Ambrogi:

***

“…LexisNexis Legal & Professional will announce a new, enhanced version of Lexis for Microsoft Office, an application that provides direct access to Lexis research and citation tools and Web search tools from directly within Microsoft Word and Outlook.

The most significant of several new features in this release is integration with Lexis Search Advantage, which enhances search capabilities across a firm’s internal document management collection, incorporating Shepard‘s Signal Indicators and embedded links to citations in a firm’s internal documents.

This new version 4.9 of Lexis for Microsoft Office also adds the ability to directly download into CaseMap, the Lexis case analysis litigation software.

What you need to figure out is (1) what security measures does Dropbox take, and (2) are you and your clients comfortable with those security measures. Most lawyers aren’t sufficiently technologically competent to accurately assess the first question, much less decide the second — and that is a problem. But maybe I can help a bit with that…”

The Troubles, the 30-year sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland, divided neighborhoods, friendships, and even families. When the Good Friday Agreement was reached in 1998, there were several attempts to preserve these histories, which included interviews with republican and loyalist paramilitary members and were to be housed under a confidentiality agreement at Boston College’s Burns Library. But when the British government demanded access to the tapes in 2011, and the U.S. attorney general complied with a subpoena, controversy erupted. Should the tapes be held until interviewees died, as per the original agreement? Or should they be used to try paramilitary members for their actions during The Troubles? This site offers links to dozens of articles from around the web, as well as legal documents surrounding the case, radio interviews, and television specials from CNN, PBS, and the BBC. For educators teaching modern Irish history or for anyone interested in the ambiguities of international law or sectarian conflict and reconciliation, this site is a must read. [CNH]
