Tom Mighell and I have recorded another episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast and it’s now available on the Legal Talk Network and on iTunes, with an RSS feed here. The episode is called “Is Windows 7 Coming to Your Computer?” (show notes website), and it’s sponsored by Bill4Time.
Here’s the episode description:
The recent release of Windows 7 hopefully ushers in a new era of peace and stability to the world of PC operating systems. But should lawyers rush out to upgrade now? In this new episode of the Kennedy-Mighell Report, co-hosts Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell discuss some of the new features in Windows 7, whether upgrading is the right move, and precautions to take before moving to the new operating system.
We discuss the official release of Windows 7, summarize the features, talk about different options and strategies, offer some tips and techniques, and draw a few tentative conclusions. Our focus is how to think about Windows and how to go about making your own decision. While we are very positive about Windows 7, we’re both planning to go to Windows 7 when we buy new computers rather than upgrading our current computers.
In our audience questions segment (we always welcome your questions for any podcast), we talk about the experiment we want to try with a public “wave” for the show we’ve opened up in Google Wave. If interested in joining the wave, you can either ask us to add you or, assuming you are already a Wave user, search for it in Wave using “with: public” “Kennedy-Mighell Report”. Among other things, we’ll use it as a way to gather questions for our audience Q&A segments and also use it as an experiment in how Google Wave might be used.
We end the podcast with our Parting Shots – practical tips you can use right away. I highlight a site called Spreeder, which offers a fascinating way to crank up your reading speed. Tom points to the newly-opened Best of ABA TECHSHOW archives.
Give our new episode a listen and let me know what you think. Show notes are here.
And try some of the back episodes as well.
