    Backing up to the cloud
    Everyone needs (at least) two forms of backup, one local, and one remote. For most of us, that means an external hard drive and a cloud backup service. I just signed up for CrashPlan's family unlimited plan, which is a steal at $6/month for unlimit…

    Dropbox vs. the others
    I have not yet selected Clio, RM or the like yet, but I read where they are integrated with the Dropbox product, and I am curious if Dropbox the best for the solo and why.  Someone recently recommended Data Deposit Box: http://kineticd.com/?pid=044d…

    MyCase vs. RocketMatter vs. Clio (derail: document assembly)
    I thought this might be a good thread to start for people to stop in and get advice on which practice management system works best for them. Now that all 3 of these have (or will soon have) document assembly features - which would likely be the mos…

    Making Documents OCR Searchable
    Now that we have a document scanner, all our new documents are OCR-enable (or whatever the proper term is). But is there a recommended way to take all the old PDFs that we have and make it so I can search within them for the text in those documents?

    Chrome OS: working in the cloud
    I just got to spend a couple of weeks with the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook. My review went up today, but I've gotta tell you, it has me thinking about whether I could (and should) move my entire practice to the cloud. I can think of a lot of advanta…

    Case Management Software
    I'm looking for case mgt software for my workers' compensation practice. Most of the "cloud" programs tout their billing capabilities. We don't/can't bill. I've looked at some, line Needles but find the cost excessive. I read some posts about Creden…

    iCloud and Google Apps
    So, my partner and I are using Google Apps for our e-mail. He is using the calendar on there for his main calendar. I'd like to use that calendar as my work calendar and sync it with my iPhone. That's pretty easy. But I'd also like to share my iClou…

    Contact Management
    How do you manage your contacts and all the business cards you receive? What program or software do you use?  Does anyone use the ScanSnap business card feature? How does that integrate with your contact management process?  Thanks!

    Has anyone used Advologix? Thoughts?
    We are considering moving over from Clio to Advologix for multiple reasons, the main one being the ability in Advologix to track and calculate internal referral fees. Has anyone used it? WE have done little beyond taking it for the free trial test …

    Skype vs. FaceTime
    Has anyone tried both? Which do you prefer and why? Would some with FaceTime be willing to connect with me so I can get a feel for it? I'd like to try it before I use it with a potential client but I don't know anyone with a Mac product.  Thanks!

    Hope you all can help this cranky old luddite lawyer. The official scansnap manual is just confusing me.   As a training run into going paperless I was going to have my receptionist/file clerk start scanning in our closed files.   My plan was to…
