If you end up collecting and storing business cards, and if you have an iPhone (though there really should be no “if” about it), you have to check out the app WorldCard Mobile.  Take photo of a business card, and it extracts the data from the card and puts it into your contacts.  I find I am using it more and more these days in my business.  No more Rolodex, no more stacks of cards.

And on the topic of iPhone, rumors abound about the next generation of the Jesus Phone, but, as always with Apple, there are more questions than answers at this point.  Will it be unveiled in June or October?  Will it move up to a 4 in screen?  Will it look like one of these gorgeous concepts?  Will it be called iPhone 5 with 4G, or avoid the naming controversy like with “the new iPad?”  Stay tuned.

What does this mean to you:

Buy WorldCard Mobile now.  Wait until later this year to buy the new iPhone, whatever it ends up being called.


Wait… what?!?

We want people to design safe products.  Fairly radical idea, I know.  Stay with me.  We also want people to make their products safe after they learn their product is not safe.  This is especially true for products used in a a manufacturing or warehouse setting, where the risks of amputation or death are high from exposed gears or rollers on all types of molding and other machines.

Number 35 is alive!

And what better way to show that a product was dangerous in the first place than that the manufacturer made it safer by adding a guard or other safety device after an injury or death.  If it was safe before, as they claim, why would they need to make any changes?

But Ohio law does not allow the jury to hear that the manufacturer made the produce safer.  Why?  The theory is that it would discourage manufacturers from doing the right thing and fixing their dangerous product.  Such after-injury changes are called subsequent remedial measures.

What does this mean to you:

Even though after-injury changes are usually not admissible at trial, they can be used to learn other relevant, admissible evidence to prove your case by counsel.
