New Webcams Add Wide-Angle Video Calls to Your TV –

Now wide-angle cameras that pop onto large-screen televisions are on the market; they capture high-definition video and a generous stretch of the living room sofa, too. Several devices, including the TV Cam HD ($199.99) from Logitech, are already on sale, with at least a half-dozen others expected in time for the holiday shopping season, said Richard Doherty, research director of the Envisioneering Group, a market research company in Seaford, N.Y.

The new TV cams are for people who want to add an Internet-based feature to their  high-definition TV’s. “You can add this capability for a few hundred dollars or less,” Mr. Doherty said. “Lots of people have HDTVs they’ve bought in the last few years, and they aren’t going to get rid of them for Internet TVs.”

Internet-enabled TVs have software for video chatting, but many models require viewers to buy a suitable add-on camera.

Logitech’s TV Cam HD works with any high-definition television that has an available HDMI port, a common connection. It comes with connectivity to the Internet by way of Ethernet or Wi-Fi, and Skype software that supports high-definition video calling. To control the camera, you use a small remote control to zoom in or pan during a call, or to enter text on the screen.

Second Circuit Strikes Down DOMA


AP reports that:

A divided federal appeals court in Manhattan this morning became the second in the nation to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act as unconstitutional.

In Windsor v. United States, 12-2335-cv, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld a ruling by Southern District Judge Barbara Jones (See Profile) that the 1996 law that defines marriage as involving a man and a woman was unconstitutional.

A majority of the three-judge Second Circuit panel, in a ruling by Chief Judge Dennis Jacobs (See Profile), concluded that the definition violated the Equal Protection Clause. Its opinion joined an earlier decision by the First Circuit in Boston.

• Update the transcript in the desktop version of Westlaw Case Notebook to include the highlighting and notes added in the app”

iPhone JD (Jeff Richardson) sums up his review:  If you already use Westlaw Case Notebook to manage your litigation files, then I imagine that this app would be very useful.  If you don’t use that product, then I doubt that you will want to use this app to highlight a transcript because you have no easy way to export the file with your annotations.  Even so, this is an app that every litigator should keep on their iPhone and iPad just in case they receive a .ptx file from a court reporter or another attorney.  With this app installed, at least you can look at the transcript immediately without having to go to a PC or ask to have the file sent to you again in another format such as pure text or PDF.
