Techlectic ... by Pat Hoover
Clio Adds Court Rules - If, like so many lawyers, you use Clio, the remarkable law office client-matter cloud based data program, you’ll be interested in knowing that Maryland Circuit and District court timelines/deadlines rules are now available to you and easily incorporated into your online calendar! Call 1-888-858-2546 or go online: www.goclio.com.
Google Spaces – Google recently added another extremely useful free cloud app and I urge you to give it a try. Spaces is a small group talk app, but with a BIG difference. Unlike Twitter, FB, Hangouts, etc., Spaces provides users with a free, private and easily controlled online portal for 1 - 500 users that you enlist and you alone, curate. I just started a Space for my grown kids to keep us all on the same “travel” page. All of us can post our “travel plans” online with Google Spaces and easily catch up on, object to, comment about, offer suggestions for, help with, or, whatever for all of our family travel plans. See: https://spaces.google.com/?smr=true.
Remember App – We’ve all been there: “I know I met this person, we talked and exchanged names, but when, where and what’s their name?!?!?!” A Free iOS app designed to make it much easier to recall the name and circumstance of prior meetings and/or any other people encounters. The Remember App is highly praised in the app firmament and offers a pleasing answer to what I and other mere mortals find so awful! See: https://goo.gl/zPHHFN for download.

Manfrotto 3 Way Tripod: This maker is truly one of the best in the world and at $99 for a full working tripod with articulating head, it's a great price for any photographer regardless of their proficiency level! Order it at Amazon.
Amazon’s Fire & Dot: At $50 each, both the Fire and the Dot offer users a ton of function at a fraction of the cost that other sellers command. The Fire is a 7” color mobile slate that has a decent battery life, a very functional ebook, streams media, and more.
The Dot is a Net connect voice controller for home or office. It works, it’s useful and it’s fun! You just can’t get all that for $50 anywhere else. What’s not to love… Order either at Amazon.
