Jets, Jewelry and the Law

What do jets, jewelry and the law have to do with each other?

Taking your in-flight experience to a whole new level recently became possible via the new Delta Glass Bottom Jet feature on the Fly Delta app.  The app offers the typical features you’d expect: booking trips, destination information, and live in-flight information during your trip.  One unique aspect of the app is the Glass Bottom Jet feature, that along with other data, gives you a graphical overview of your current flight thus providing virtually real-time information about the landmarks the plane is flying over.

Imagine how cool it would be if a similar glass bottom legal developments app existed, thereby allowing for immediate response to what’s happening in the legal profession and to developments potentially affecting your clients. A real time view of these things would result in immediate calls to action for helping clients resolve legal issues resulting in quicker resolution.  Instant knowledge could also lead to faster additions of new matters for existing clients and garnering a new client based on the real-time instant information gleaned.

Speaking of instant results, the latest wearable tech to hit the market which also makes a fashion statement, is an 18K gold-plated ladies ring.  Ringly takes instant notification to a new level. Business Insider has an article  detailing how it connects to your smart phone via an app and discreetly notifies you when you receive a call or text. Now you can be certain not miss important meetings, news, texts, phone calls even if you don’t have your phone in close proximity by wearing this ring that lights up and buzzes to alert you of any number of notifications you set-up which could include legal and client news alerts.

The short answer to the question of what do jets and jewelry have to do with the law is absolutely nothing. But the bigger idea of applying technology to stay on top of game in the legal industry has everything to do with it.
