Apple computers & lawyers who use them

By July 28, 2006Uncategorized

I noticed a few minutes ago that someone had found my site by googling the phrase "lawyers using apple computers."  Apparently, one of my blog posts on the joys of using apple computers is on the first page of the search results.  The the top hit is Randy Singer’s site,  That makes sense although his site is a traditional website, not a blog.  So he doesn’t provide narrative discussions so much as useful links and similar information.  A few results down is a reference to Dave Swanner’s South Carolina Trial Law Blog, which doesn’t link to a specific post, but does contain a blurb that is negative ("I Will Never Buy Another Apple Computer Again.")

The search result that Google returns for my blog is to a group of posts that I have under the ‘Apple’ category.  Everytime I post something about Apple I assign that post to the ‘Apple category.’  So if you click on this link you can see all of those posts in one grouping.  Apparently, if someone is looking around for a lawyer blog that discusses the use of Apple products in the practice of law then my blog (with the Apple category) is one of the easiest to find resources.  That’s kind of a shame.

I’m sure that there are lots of lawyers who are more cutting edge with Apple than I am.  I’m not saying I wouldn’t like to be more immersed in using Apple stuff, but I have limited resources, financially and temporally.  I do have plans to try running WIndows on a MacBook laptop, and I’d also like to try doing a powerpoint presentation using just an Ipod.  If I do I’ll post my observations.  Of course, if Apple wants to help me out I’m not one to push away a helpful hand that creates cool products.

P.S. If you're a practicing lawyer, check out this Law Practice Assessment . After answering a few questions, you'll get detailed recommendations for improving five key areas of your practice.

    Dave- unless you have a problem with your screen caused by something you did rather than an inherent defect, I can’t imagine any reason that Apple’s full one-year warranty wouldn’t cover it. Sometimes you just need to call a second time and get a different person who can understand the nature of the problem. I’ve even had them address problems that occurred beyond the warranty period. Give them another try.
