Lifehackers’ Hive Five: Five Best System Tray Applications

A clever Hive Five from Lifehacker, readers voted on their favorite system tray applications and Lifehacker lists them at the jump. They include Ultramon (multiple monitor selection tool); TaskBar Shuffle (reorganize your task bar); AutoHotKey (dead simple macro scripting tool); Digsby (chat tool and social media email tracker); and Dropbox (remote file storage). All look deceptively simple to employ, which is the hallmark of a useful application in my book. Hit the jump below for screen shots and more information about the applications. If you check them out, I would love some first-hand feedback!

Republishing this link to Jeff Richardson’s review of a handy iPhone applications for legal reference materials. This article discusses new features in the previously existing applications. Since I was unaware of the applications, I followed the link to another article that lists them. Here they are below, taken from Mr. Richardson’s post:

  • FRCP gives you the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure $2.99
  • Bankruptcy  gives you Title 11 of the U.S. Code. $2.99.
  • FDCA  gives you the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act as codified in Title 21 of the U.S. Code.  $3.99.
  • FRAP  gives you the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.  $1.99.
  • FRCrimPro  gives you the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.  $1.99.
  • FRE  gives you the Federal Rules of Evidence.  $1.99.
  • Lanham  contains the Lanham Act, the portion of 15 U.S.C. that defines federal trademark law.  $1.99.
  • Patent Rules  contains the local patent rules from five federal district courts (N.D. Cal., S.D. Cal., N.D. Ga., W.D. Pa. and E.D. Tex.)  $1.99.
  • Sarbanes Oxley  gives you Title 15, Chapter 98 of the U.S. Code.  $1.99
  • Securities  gives you Sarbanes Oxley plus the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940.  $4.99.

A Journalist’s Toolbox That Works For Lawyers Too

I happened upon this listing of legal resources compiled at the Journalist’s Toolbox, a site maintained by the Society of Professional Journalists. While not all-inclusive, it certainly gets close. The list is broken down into categories: U.S. Courts; Legal Directories; Legal Databases, Documents and Statistics; Legal Associations and Organizations; Law Journals and News; Government Sites; Cyberspace Law; Copyright Law (good one for journalists); and, of course, Miscellaneous. To give a teaser, the first few general purpose resources are linked below, with quotes from the site:
