Legal Loop: Wearable tech data as evidence in the courtroom | NY Daily Record

Nicole Black, Esq.:

***

However in recent months, the tide has begun to turn. I first noticed this when I was speaking on a panel about wearable technology last month in San Francisco at Legaltech West Coast. Toward the end of our talk, an audience member raised the issue of requesting the plaintiff’s Fitbit data during the discovery phase of personal injury cases. For many in the room, it was as if a light bulb suddenly went off. Their eyes lit up and they began nodding their heads in unison. Suddenly they realized that perhaps wearables were relevant to lawyers after all.

How often do technologies which may be disruptive start as “toys” or entertainment?

How to download the iOS 9 public beta | iMore

***

iOS 9 marks the first time Apple has ever released a new version of the iPhone and iPad operating system as a public beta. That means more people than ever before will be able to test it out, try the new and enhanced features, and provide feedback before it goes into wide release this fall. But it also means people will have to go through the public beta download and install process. While it’s not complicated, is is new and different. So, we’re going to walk you through it and give you a place to ask questions if you need extra help. 

Warning: Beta means beta. This isn’t an early access program. It’s pre-release software. That means put it on a secondary device if you have one and, if you don’t, think really hard before installing it on your primary device. If you rely on your iPhone or iPad for critical communications or to run your life or business, you may want to stay clear until the official release this fall.

Apple Watch Review 2: Reliability, Utility, & Whether It Will Replace My Traditional Watch | aBlogtoWatch

Ariel Adams reviews the Apple Watch from a luxury watch perspective:

***

“….Well, I am sure the Apple Watch is not flawless, but in my 10 days of experience thus far (again, at the time of writing, rather than of publishing), it has yet to not reliably connect or fail to display a notification that it should. So, unlike pretty much all other smartwatches I’ve personally experienced, the Apple Watch is the first one that doesn’t completely suck right out of the box…”

The review has a multitude of photos and links to other articles about the next “must have” technology from Apple.

My main question is:  Can I wait until the second generation to buy one?
