What’s the future of Google Glass for law firms? Or a good app for handwritten notes on an iPad?

Both Good Notes AND the free version seem to no longer exist in the App Store. ???

Anyone who allows Google Glass into their facility has to recognize that you have given implicit permission for a camera to be pointing around the facility that can undetectably record and even stream video & sound directly out of the facility in real time. The camera can also undetectably photograph anything (documents, designs, equipment, people, etc) and offload it in real time directly out of the facility.

I can't imagine any business with any brains allowing such devices into their facility. At least with a cell phone, you can usually see when photos and video are being recorded. But as anyone who has worked in really secure facilities knows, cell phones are banned from such places.

I am looking for an app that lets me type notes on a soft yellow background on my iPad [remember the notepad on iPad before they ruined it?], and lets me organize the notes by groups. Any recommendations?

Michele: The best note-taking app in general and that would allow your use is Notability. You can type notes but I graduated from that to hand-writing long ago and have never looked back.

Just as Gaedal Glas ultimately proved very effective. People should learn not to view them as half-empty.
