March 8th, 2010 by The Clio Team
With the release of Apple’s iPad just under a month away, speculation on the impact of the device is continuing to mount. Clio’s developers have added their voice to the chorus by way of a interview by Josh Barrett on his TabletLegal blog on cloud computing, the iPad, the legal technology industry, and what happens when you combine all three.
The interview touches on a wide range of topics including why Clio was founded, why Clio decided to go the SaaS route, adoption of technology by lawyers, and how the iPad will impact the legal industry. Read the entire interview here.
While we’re on the topic of the iPad we’ll take the opportunity to point out a few of our favorite blog posts on the iPad:
- Josh Barett at TabletLegal has written extensively on several aspects of the iPad, including its ease of use being appealing to lawyers, the freedom it promises, and how the “less is more” design ethos of iPad applications is good for lawyers.
- Reid Trautz suggests the iPad will be the tipping point that sees the cloud go mainstream in 2010 on his Reid My Blog! site. Reid astutely points out that the explosion in mobile devices and their capabilities, coupled with the increasing need for lawyers to access practice information anywhere, on-demand, will help drive cloud computing applications like Clio into the mainstream.
- Jeff Richardson writes on the iPhone implications of the iPad at his fantastic iPhoneJD blog.
- Victor Medina points out several key design decisions Apple has made that may make the iPad the “ultimate machine for lawyers” on the MacLovin’ JD blog.
- Ben Stevens sums up his impression succinctly on The Mac Lawyer: iPad = iWow.
- Joe Ficocello wires on how the iPad will be rolled out in law firms at The Rung.
- TechnoLawyer speculates the iPad will become the legal pad, reinvented.
