This Episode is the first part of a three-part mini-series: (1) the hardware we use, (2) the software we use, (3) special resources we use when we travel. Rob and Sara discuss exactly what hardware they've chosen to invest in, the importance of using the right hardware for the job. They discuss balancing the magic of write-offs and business expenses with the need to keep overhead low and pay bills. Rob uses an iMac 27 inch desktop, and a 10.5 inch iPad Pro. Sara uses a MacBook Air and a 10.5 inch iPad Pro. Sara uses a Vari-desk; Rob uses a hydraulic standing desk. Sara discusses the liberation of leaving big law document management systems and PCs for the freedom of the apple universe. She discusses the trials and tribulations of not having an IT department. They touch on the importance of taking the time to set up professional data privacy safeguards. The upcoming Apple event on September 12th will reveal the newest iphones so check out the shownotes if you are looking for a secure way to dispose of old technology. They both use ScanSnap scanners.
