January 30, 2012
According to Pew Research, the share of U.S. adults who own tablet computers nearly doubled (from 10% to 19%) between mid-December 2011 and early January 2012. The number of adults owning an e-book reader – many of which are able to receive documents via a specialized e-mail address – nearly doubled as well.
Because employees often blend together their personal and professional lives in their use of portable devices such as these – and it is fairly well established in the United States that personal computer equipment that is used for business purposes may be subject to discovery – it is easy to anticipate that their growing use will increase the frequency of them being targeted in e-discovery.
