  Westlaw - Hello Flexibility
 
Nuix - New Release 5.2
 
It would seem that today's technology is catching up with the Saturday morning TV shows from my youth. We've already seen the original flip phone become reality. The new Rufus Cuff looks like something Jonah, Ruth, Samuel and Adam wore. It sounds like it has the same potential wide range of features too. Add a second one on your other wrist and bigger batteries and they could be used to fight evil. In the next six months I fully expect the wearables market to let me tap my chest.

Many law firms have not decided how to bring the law firm itself into the modern day structure of a 21st Century firm. "The primary demands on librarians are to keep costs low, client costs low, and to watch out for the firm's best interest." Really? I thought the primary demand on librarians was legal research, competitive intelligence and analysis. Every department has, as a byproduct of what they do, the demand to keep costs down. Perhaps classifying it as your "primary demand" is part of the issue? Read more at 3 Geeks and a Law Blog: So, What Is Wrong With Law Firm Libraries Today?
