New York, NY (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
The State Bar of Texas is offering new continuing legal education courses featuring privacy and security expert Dr. Katherine Albrecht to educate lawyers about Internet practices that put clients at risk.
The webinar courses, “The (Near) Death of Privacy: Its Impact on Our Lives and Our Practices” and “Preserving Attorney/Client Privilege: Web Apps to the Rescue,” are available on a pay-per-view basis through the Texas Bar Association to provide continuing legal education credit.
“Like it or not, new forms of technology are shaping the way we practice law,” State Bar of Texas President Lisa Tatum noted in a recent editorial in the Texas Bar Journal. She said a top priority of members was “for the bar to address the practical, technical, and ethical challenges that new forms of technology inevitably bring.”
Presentations by Albrecht and other experts provide what Tatum terms “vital information in this area” to legal professionals.
“Attorneys are often shocked at how risky using regular search engines, social media, and email can be,” said Albrecht, who delivers the courses, along with attorney and business development consultant Chris Kirby of PCT Solutions.
Albrecht and Kirby explain how popular web services routinely capture and store extremely private and sensitive information. For example, all searches performed through Yahoo, Google, and Bing are stored as personally identifiable information that can be subpoenaed or obtained with a warrant, and all email sent through Yahoo and Gmail is read and cataloged by the companies providing those services.
Albrecht, who represents private search engine StartPage.com and encrypted email service StartMail.com, urges attorneys to use these privacy-friendly alternatives to protect their clients and their practices. She explains how StartPage.com provides Google results anonymously without storing users’ search data, and how its sister search engine Ixquick.com also collects no data, which eliminates concerns about sensitive search terms ending up in the wrong hands.
Her company’s soon-to-be-launched email service, StartMail, also offers superior privacy and security. Double encrypted email options reassure attorneys that only intended recipients can open confidential email messages.
“The Internet has become an indispensable tool for legal practices, but the privacy threats are very real,” Albrecht noted. “These new webinars are an excellent way for legal professionals to identify potential pitfalls and learn how tools like StartPage and StartMail can help protect their clients and their practices.”

Housecall, a New App for iOS that Connects Users with Trusted Home Service Professionals, Launches in San Diego
SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
HouseCall, the app for your house, announced the launch of its services in San Diego today, with more markets coming soon. HouseCall takes the hassle out of home maintenance by connecting users to trusted neighborhood service professionals (Pros) at the push of a button. Homeowners can order everything from an electrician, emergency plumber to tech geek support. This video shows just how easy HouseCall makes it.
HouseCall identifies and then curates independent service Pros in a homeowners neighborhood and makes them easy to find, so they dont have to. No more spending hours reading online reviews, asking for recommendations and then negotiating prices. With HouseCall users select the service they need, view picture profiles and ratings of available Pros in their area, and the fixed-price they charge. HouseCall gives homeowners a seamless way to book and pay for both scheduled, and on-demand, home improvement help from trusted Pros.
We built HouseCall because we had the same problem that every homeowner has – its tough to find good, reliable, local help, said Ian Heidt, CEO and co-founder of HouseCall. HouseCall puts reviews and prices in one spot and users are kept up-to-date on the status of a job from start to finish. We are bringing ease and transparency to the world of local home services.”
In just a few easy steps, homeowners can order the following services: Audio & TV, Carpet Cleaning, Electrical, Handyman, Landscaping, Maid Service, Painting, Plumbing, Security System Consultation and Install, Smart Home Setup, Tech Help, Windows & Exterior and Holiday/Seasonal Tasks (hanging Christmas lights). HouseCall is constantly adding new services and taking user suggestions for services theyd like to see.

2) View the profile, job details, and prices of nearby local Pros.
3) Schedule service or get on-demand help.
4) When a Pro is en-route, users will see them on a map. Once the job is completed to the users satisfaction, payment is processed automatically with the credit card they have on file. There is no need to tip.
5) Wrap it up with a rating of the service. Ratings can only be done by people who have actually used a service Pro to ensure they are fair.
There are also many benefits to Pros who use the app. Most importantly, HouseCall makes it easier for Pros to find additional work by connecting them to a marketplace of homeowners and jobs. Pros see nearby service requests and can also get local work during their downtime. It also helps them manage their workflow with easy-to-use scheduling tools, helps them form the connection with new and returning clients, and provides automatic payment and streamlined digital invoices for every job.
“The Pros version of HouseCall allows home service professionals to book more jobs by giving them the mobile tools to do so, said Roland Ligtenberg, co-founder of HouseCall. We bring real-time opportunities to our Pros, organize schedules, generate invoices, and process payments so that they can focus on completing jobs and making HouseCall users happy.”
