I’m getting a new phone (this one) soon. I’ve been researching apps for it. This is my favourite thus far:

Whether you’re doing research during your subway commute, in court using KeyCite to check your opponent’s case, or working at an off-site client meeting, WestlawNext Mobile puts the most comprehensive collection of legal information right at your fingertips.

I suspect judges in most jurisdictions would find it a little rude if counsel made a habit of playing with their Blackberries in court … However, this does sound very awesome generally.

Every woman’s experience is as valid as any other’s. Ergo, one woman’s account of her own interaction with men is, I’m sorry to say, completely fucking useless to you if you’re not dealing with that woman.

If you agree or disagree with that extract (i.e. if you’re anything but apathetic about it), go check out the full article. Interesting stuff – I like to think she’s correct.
