Today’s topic: virtualization.

As the American Bar Association’s 2012 Tech Survey indicates, the iPhone has become a primary tool for the legal profession: Of the 89 per cent of American lawyers who use a smartphone for law related tasks, 49 per cent of them use an iPhone. In comparison, 31 per cent use a BlackBerry and 16 per cent use an Android.
