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. From within Word and Outlook, users can perform a single search across internal firm content, external content in Lexis Advance, and the open Web, or narrow the search to any of those types of content.

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. Users can choose to have documents delivered in a format compatible with CaseMap, so that they can be incorporated into case planning and assessment….”

Dropbox is Not “Insecure”–Lawyerist.com

by Sam Glover on April 9th, 2015

***

“…Asking whether Dropbox is secure or not is asking the wrong question. 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…”

Overcome Chronic Back Pain with Healthy Habits–Lawyerist

by Sam Harden on April 1st, 2015

ownCloud.org

https://owncloud.org/

For readers who know about Dropbox, ownCloud will be an intuitive find. The services are similar. They both provide online storage space for documents, graphics, mp3s, and other files. They both make sharing files with friends and coworkers simple and allow access from mobile devices and multiple desktops. However, more sophisticated users may prefer ownCloud for at least two reasons. First, as an open-source system, it is more flexible, so that users can adjust the services to their needs. Second, while Dropbox charges for extra storage, users can store huge amounts of data on ownCloud for free. The only catch is that users will need to run and install ownCloud on their own server. This is relatively simple for those who have a website and a little knowledge of hosting. [CNH]

Starting a Podcast? Here’s What to Buy–Lawyerist

by Sam Glover on March 27th, 2015

“…When I was trying to figure out what kind of equipment we needed to start podcasting, I was frustrated by the lack of a good just-get-this-stuff list so I didn’t have to research what to get, buy it, realize it’s the wrong thing, then buy something else. Fortunately that only happened a couple of times. To save you the same frustrating experience, here is my just-get-this-stuff list, which is also what we are using right now to record the Lawyerist Podcast…”.
