4-Step Computer Security Upgrade

Learn to encrypt your files, secure your computer when using public Wi-Fi, enable two-factor authentication, and use good passwords.

Last week, Andy Wilson from Logikcull (here’s our review) bragged about “an entirely new Logikcull app that’s built for any size screen: whether you’re on a watch (seriously), phone, tablet, or giant big screen TV ….” Obviously, I had to see it on a watch.

Wilson delivered. Not only does the new app resize to watch size, but it’s actually usable. After I saw it for myself, I asked him to record a demo. Here is Logikcull, on a watch:

As Wilson admits, the screen in the video is actually a bit larger than the current crop of smartwatch screens, which have 320×320 displays. But you get the idea.

How useful is this? Well, other than Futurelawyer’s Rick Georges, who is kind of obsessed with his Samsung Galaxy Gear, I doubt many lawyers even own a smartwatch — much less want to review documents on one. Because realistically, a tiny watch screen is always going to be a terrible place to review documents.

But it’s also kind of cool. From now on, I humbly propose “But can you do doc review on it?” as the legal geek version of “But can it run Doom?” Sort of a “Hello World” for legal tech.
