Read entire Forbes article here.

On Tuesday the American Civil Liberties Union published a report it obtained from a drug investigation by theImmigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, documenting the seizure and search of a suspect’s iPhone from her bedroom. While it’s no surprise that a phone carries plenty of secrets, the document presents in stark detail a list of that personal information, including call logs, photos, videos, text messages, Web history, eight different passwords for various services, and perhaps most importantly, 659 previous locations of the phone invisibly gathered from Wifi networks and cell towers.

Should judges disclose Facebook friends? ‘Context is significant,’ ABA ethics opinion says – ABA Journal

Judges who participate in social networking sites must heed the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct, cautions Formal Opinion 462 (PDF). That means the judges should avoid contacts that would undermine their independence, integrity, or impartiality, or that would create an appearance of impropriety.

The Feb. 21 opinion by the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility acknowledges that “judicious use” of electronic social media–referred to as “ESM”–can be a valuable tool for public outreach. “When used with proper care, judges’ use of ESM does not necessarily compromise their duties under the Model Code any more than use of traditional and less public forms of social connection such as U.S. Mail, telephone, email or texting,” according to the opinion

How I Went From 1,000 Emails to Inbox Zero (and Stayed There) with Mailstrom-LifeHacker

BY:  Adam Dachis

Inbox zero: it’s the impossible dream that gets further and further away as you let your emails pile up, but you don’t have to get stuck with the clutter. Thanks to an awesome webapp called Mailstrom, I finally got my thousand-email inbox under control in an hour. Here’s how.

Inbox zero is a lofty and often unachievable dream for most, and for a long time I just assumed that piles of email would rule my life. Almost by accident, I came across a webapp calledMailstrom and, along with other options, decided to give it a try. After playing around with it for an hour, I noticed something strange: my inbox was virtually empty.

HOWEVER:

Can I connect my email account using POP?

Sorry, Mailstrom does all of it’s work using IMAP. To use Mailstrom, your email provider must support IMAP. This means we cannot work with hotmail.com, verizon.net, and comcast.net email accounts. We are sorry about this technical limitation.

Can I clean up my POP accounts anyway?

Sure, here’s one way you can clean up a POP account. First, sign up for a free Gmail account. Go to Settings, and go to the “Accounts and Import” tab. In the section titled “Check mail from other accounts (using POP3)”, add your other email account, and make sure to uncheck “Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server” and “Archive incoming messages”. Now connect your new Gmail account to Mailstrom, and start cleaning up those old messages!

Why Skype is the Most Used Software in Our Law Firm – Divorce Discourse

Lee Rosen:

Skype is my most used software package. I use it, literally, all day long. It’s pretty amazing when you really put it to use.

I use Skype, primarily, as my instant messenger client. Everyone in my firm, in all three offices, runs Skype all day and we communicate with instant messages constantly. I use it when I want someone to call me. I send a quick message that says “call me now” or “call me when you get a chance.”

We use it when someone arrives at the office for a meeting to let the attorney or paralegal know their visitor has arrived. We use it to arrange for front desk coverage when the receptionist needs to go to the bathroom. We alert attorneys that a caller is holding when the attorney is on another call. Skype works well between offices and within a single office. It’s also terrific when someone is working from home. Of course, you can send messages while already on a call so you don’t need to deal with a noisy intercom or putting a caller on hold.

That’s just the beginning of what Skype can do.
