Monster Laptop

Microsoft's Surface hardware is very popular in legal. Now MS is releasing the Surface Book 2. Better CPUs and GPUs, two screen sizes (13.5 and 15") and other improvements have been added. But arguably there are some silly, even stupid omissions and failures with the new Surface Book 2. Read the complete review at ars technica: Surface Book 2 review: Monster performance, but lightning hasn't struck twice

Making a list, checking it twice...

While this list might not be one that Santa checks, lawyers will want to check it out - even non Florida lawyers. Read about this eight-category ESI checklist at eDiscovery Daily Blog : Florida Has a New eDiscovery Checklist: eDiscovery Best Practices

A defining moment...

Mark Cohen writes, "The American Bar Association (ABA) describes a lawyer as: 'a licensed professional who advises and represents others in legal matters.'" Then in rapid succession he asks, "(1) what is a 'legal matter'? (2) Who makes that call? (3) when are lawyers required? (4) what differentiates a lawyer from other resources - human and machine - in the legal supply chain? (5) why can't most individuals and small businesses afford lawyers? (6) is there a difference between the practice of law and the delivery of legal services? (7) is the legal profession the same as the legal industry? and (8) what purpose do lawyers serve?" Wow. Make sure to read more at Legal Mosaic: What's A Lawyer Now?
