    Using Video
    Does anyone have any recommendations for good video equipment? I'd like to start doing some video posts both on Lawyerist and elsewhere. I know I need a video camera, some lighting stuff (right?) and a tripod. I would be curious to hear people's rec…

    Paper Shredder?
    I know that the general consensus on scanners is the ScanSnap S1500, but what about paper shredders? It seems like shredding is a key part of the paperless office, but there are a ton of shredders out there to choose from. I would love to hear some …

    What APPS do you use every day?
    Sam and I were talking about minimizing what apps and social networks we belong to in another thread. Which led me to wonder what people have on their smartphone's? What are you using on a daily basis both professionally and personally?

    Wolfram Alpha
    I just read on Bob Ambrogi's blog about the new Wolfram Alpha's app. I recently discovered W.A. (http://www.wolframalpha.com/), a pretty powerful mix of excel and wikipedia, and I was wondering: - if somebody else knows/uses it - if this new app, …

    I recently received an e-mail from one of my virtual office sites and there was a "write a review" button in the e-mail.  The link took me to a page where I could then click on a number of sites to review (yelp, places, judy's list, etc.)  The servi…

    .com versus .co versus .net versus .us versus etc.
    Would appreciate any feed back on what top level domain extension is best to use for a firm website.  I am having a tough time finding a .com name to register for my firm. What would be the next best alternative? I am considering .co.  Any thoughts?

    For the last few months I have been using a PDF review app for the iPad called pdf-notes (you can download the free app or an ad-free version for $9.99). I suggest people take a look because it has some great features (and it's free!).  Besides th…

    The "Hobby Firm"
    My wife jokingly said the other day that I have a "hobby firm." In other words, my law practice is no longer my primary source of income, and it no longer takes up the majority of my time. Instead, I represent a few clients who I am excited to work…

    Contact Management?
    I need to find a better system for having all of my contacts in one place. And I am hoping it can be rather inexpensive, compatible with my iPhone, sync-able with Google Apps and Quickbooks...does this exist?

    Can you skip cloud backup if you have an indestructible hard drive?
    I have always advised everyone to have at least two backups in at least two different places. In other words, one local, one remote. The cloud makes it easy to do remote backup, because all you have to do is download Dropbox or Mozy, and you're good…

    Dropbox Alternative
    So my firm had been using dropbox for cloud backup and remote access to our client files. We decided about a month ago that we needed a better physical backup of our files so we moved all our files over to a separate 1 tb solid state hard drive that…

    My Case
    Anyone tried this practice management software? Bills itself as the best of social networking type communication (presumably with clients) and legal practice.

    Real Estate Closing Software
    Does anyone here do real estate closings?  If so, what is the software your firm uses when preparing the closing documents like the HUD?     If they don't use a particular kind of software, why?   Any help is appreciated.
