LTNY 2009: Gadget Update

LegalTech isn't the most gadget-focused tech conferences out there, specializing as it does in tools for practicing law -- whether that means electronic discovery services, time and billing software or how lawyers can use Twitter. Sure, every tech-savvy lawyer has a BlackBerry (or iPhone), but this is no CES.

Still, there are some good gadgets out on the show floor. Gearlog was impressed with the "extremely cool and fairly terrifying Paraben CSI Stick."

The device plugs into a cell phone and lets the user pull off all the phone's "forensic data" -- the phone book, text messages, camerphone images, call logs -- everything. The Stick can even retrieve text messages that have been deleted by the phone's owner.

Of course, just because there aren't a million gadgets at the trade show to play with doesn't mean one has to walk away empty-handed. The annual search for the best LegalTech swag goes on -- so far, Matt Homan is most impressed with Kroll's gear
