Okay, I have to admit that I’m a bit picky about writing, especially when it comes to discussions of technology. I was intrigued by the idea of an article on the importance of lawyers using PDAs in their practice. The article made some great points about using a PDA as an information management tool, but at very end, no doubt in an effort to end with a wisp of wisdom, the writer makes this lame observation:
"Using a PDA at even a basic level makes you appear more organized and competent. This can help to impress clients and intimidate opponents."
I don’t know if clients are going to be impressed just because you use a PDA to organize, but I seriously doubt that opponents are going to be intimidated just because you are pulling notes out of a handheld device. If so, they aren’t very worthy opponents.
