LEGO meets iPhone

Having grown up playing with Lego (yes girls play Lego too) and having two sons that are passionate about Lego, I was very excited when I read about “Life of George” game. What I found fascinating and at the same time very innovative is combining into one game the traditional Lego blocks and the iPhone or iPod Touch (see video below).

Naysayers note that George does not offer much in the way of imaginative play and I’d agree. You may play it for a while and later forget about it. However, this is the first “augmented reality” game of Lego and may mark a new way of table games interacting with mobile apps. I rather see this “interactive” combination as opposed to the pure Lego WII video games.

At the end, it is innovation, creativity and adopting the new technologies that will make companies stay in the “game”. At Bellefield, we are to stay in the "game".

ILTA study reveals that the iPad is the most exciting technology trend for law firms

Jeff Richardson in his blog “iPhone J.D. Lawyers using iPhones and iPads” analyzes the results of the survey “sixth annual technology purchasing survey” conducted by ILTA and InsideLegal. You can download the results of the survey here.

Jeff points out “When asked to name the most exciting technology or trend, the #1 answer in this year's survey was tablets. And as we know, when people say "tablets" they are really just saying "iPads" considering that around 90% of tablet purchases by lawyers are iPads”. Regarding current and future Tablet's adoption, Jeff writes “About 25% of survey respondents said that iPads were one of the major technology purchases of their law firm over the last 12 months. Similarly, about 25% of respondents said that the iPad would be one of the major technology purchases for the next 12 months.”
