Thank you for visiting the Family Law Lawyer Tech & Practice blog. My name is John Harding. I am a family law lawyer practicing in Northern California. Long ago I realized that I could practice law more effectively and more efficiently (i.e., better and easier) by availing myself of the technological tools that are out there. I also learned that a successful law practice requires successful marketing. Hardware and software working together make me a better lawyer, and make my life easier. Marketing helps to bring in the business necessary for professional survival. By this blog I hope to share the tips, tricks, and technology that I have learned about so that others may benefit!

Google Drive On The Horizon

Google is set to launch its new Google Drive product. From what I can tell it is going to be a cloud based file storage and collaboration tool similar to Dropbox and Box.  What intrigues me about Drive is its favorite apps feature.  According to Google you will be able to "create, open and share files from a variety of apps directly in Google Drive." And you will be able to "open over 30 file types right in your browser—including HD video, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop—even if you don’t have the program installed on your computer."  Does that mean I can open and edit a PowerPoint on my iPad?  Read pdf's without a viewer app?  Read and write Word docs\?  The inference would be yes.  And that would be a nice gadget enhancer!

The exact release date is not out.  You can log in to your Google account and request that a notice be sent when it is available.  Sounds positive.  We will have to keep an eye on it.
