I Never Promised You a (Dusty)Rose Garden…

Artificial-Sweeteners
…but I did promise to try to post more often.  Isn't it a shame when work gets in the way of a good blog post?  Having not posted anything this week, I wanted to let you know about two subjects I'm working on for you right now:

  1. Due to all of the controversy over Google's privacy policy, I'm writing an instructive article about alternate software products you may use to sync email, contacts and calendar on all of your devices; including desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.  And here's the best part – you can do it free (for power users who want more robust features, I'll also include some pay options).  I don't know about you, but being able to create emails, calendar appointments and/or modify contacts – then having the device automatically propagate the data to all of my other devices simultaneously – is one of life's greatest time-savers!  Here's another bonus, that should appeal to many of you – you'll have a database that lives on your own device, not just via access in the cloud.  Yes, there will be pictures, in fact, I've been playing with an excellent app that creates terrific images from a non-rooted Android smartphone.  Stay tuned…
  2. I'm also working on a comparison of scientific analyses in California courts versus other jurisdictions.  I'd seen a few good articles floating around about using the Daubert analysis to support the implementation of predictive coding.  Well, that's not going to help in the Golden State, where we follow the Kelly-Frye standard (aka the 'Kelly' standard).  I'd had a lot of exposure to this during my days at the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.  Ask me, sometime, about how my boss and I successfully used a "Sweet'N Low" packet to impeach the defense's scientific evidence in a criminal case, once.  I suppose today, we would have called it the Splenda Gambit…

I won't post until I have the time to do the quality job you expect, so look for them a little ways down the road.  In the meantime, enjoy your weekend!
