Lifehacker is a blog that bills itself as: "…an award-winning, daily blog that features tips, shortcuts, and downloads that help you get things done smarter and more efficiently." In reality, Liifehacker puts out reviews, tips and tricks, tutorials, downloads and more relating to technology.
In it's Best of the Best: The Hive Five Winners post, Lifehacker provides a listing of what it considers to be the est of the products in a number of categories. You may not agree that these designated porducts are truly the "best" in their categroy I I disagree with some of them), there is still useful information here for lawyers looking for ways to do things more easily or protect themselves and their data. Inlcuded on the Lifehacker list are a number of my perrenial favorites including CCleaner (keep all of the crap cleaned off of your system, Filezilla (ftp file transfer made simple and free) and DownThemAll (make downloading multiple files simple). The list also includes Dropbox as a file syncing tool that I heard about from an Illinois State Bar Member at their Solo & Small Firm Conference earlier this month. Dropbox also lets you share files with others and works from a browser.
