I worked in a law firm where almost everything paper was scanned to a networked hard drive. Anyone sitting at a terminal could pull up a copy of any document for any client; there was no "Who has the McLaughlin file for Tulsa county?!?". The weak spot in the system was taking documents to court. They had to be printed up, placed in a folder, copied., etc. The iPad with 3G would be nice for pulling up statutes, court cases, etc., available in my state online, not to mention responding to e-mail., etc., during down time in the courtroom. Easy to use, portable, battery life would be great for this. What I'm wondering is how easy would it to be to move a few folders containing PDF's to and from the iPad. I'd love to be able to move a couple of folders to it from my iMac the night before court instead of lugging around a briefcase. And, if something unexpected comes up, I'm thinking that a legal assistant could use dropbox or mobile me to give me almost instant access to another folder, file, or document. How practical would it be to expect this? Also, could you use the ipod-usb cable to move a document from it to another computer? Any chance a usb access of any kind could be provided for a flash drive? And, no locking indentation for a cable? Really? It's too hard to put a frakkin' hole in the side or back? It's too big to stick in your pocket, but definitely too valuable to leave lying on a table. I'm anxiously wondering if this could be the key to a mobile paperless office. It'll be interesting to see if this could become a vital must have for thousands of mobile professionals, or if apple is content to merely make cool little toys and gadgets for home consumers. Anyone's advice or opinions would be welcomed. Thanks.
