As an attorney, I totally understand this.

Considering most of our job is writing, I'm amazed at how poorly most people understand Microsoft word. I am not an expert, but if you don't even know what style sheets are or how to insert a cross reference, you are creating SO much more work for yourself as you try to "clean-up" the document later.

But as attorneys who are getting paid by the hour, there can be short term benefit (more billable hours) to this inefficiency.

Oh thank god. All this time I was thinking that no storage device is 100% reliable and here you come along and shatter that view. Thank you David_Hart for assuring me that SD cards are 100% reliable and never experience data loss. I am switching to SD cards for all of my backups from now on; both at home and at work! I am sure my boss will love how much money I saved him by switching from costly tape and off site providers to simple SD cards. THANK YOU!

Don't be a tool.

No one is saying you keep your one copy of the nuclear launch codes on a SD card. He is saying they have become relatively inexpensive removable storage and that most phone makers outside of apple have acknowledged this.

The herd instinct among economists makes sheep look like independent thinkers.
