Editor's Note

Editor's Note FOR the last six weeks, I've been obsessed with the question of how can lawyers stay on top of legal technology and still have time to practice law? (And not go insane.)

I've come to the conclusion that part of the answer is the famous acronym KISS: As in, "Keep It Simple, Stupid."

To be honest, this latest fixation was triggered by my own revamping blitz. I upgraded everything: both Macs (alas, not to OS X); got an IBM ThinkPad (W2000); jettisoned my Palm in favor of PocketPC; ramped up to a HP Pavilion 7855 (WMe) at home; installed Office XP; and, last but not least, got a CardScan 500 and threw out four Rolodexes. The common denominator: Outlook (Exchange). I now read Outlook manuals on flights, but I love that I can now access my calendar and contacts anywhere.

So you won't be surprised that upgrading is the main theme of this issue! By the way: no need to send letters: Both Anthony Paonita's and Robert Ambrogi's columns will return next month. We just gave them August off. Enjoy the rest of the summer!
