A few months ago, we profiled a bill proposed in the ongoing legislative session that would have handed law enforcement officers responding to the scene of a motor vehicle accident with a new tool to determine which party (or which parties, if multiple drivers are suspected) were using a mobile device in the moments before the crash. The bill was Assembly Bill 200 (known by the shorthand of A.B. 200), and it was among the wave of new bills that washed over Carson City in the early weeks of February as the legislative session kicked off.
March Madness is upon us. This year, as in so many years prior, sports fans of all persuasions – from the die-hards who never miss a game to those who are just conversant enough to avoid referring to “basketball rings”  – will whittle away countless hours refreshing the same webpage to monitor their brackets predicting the outcome of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Under a new proposed law in Nevada, first responders on the scene of a traffic accident would have a powerful new tool to determine who was at fault and whether negligent or even criminal activity might have been a contributing factor in causing the automobile crash. The bill is working its way through the Nevada Legislature as lawmakers enter their second month of reviewing proposals.
Now that Thanksgiving is past, many of us turn to the next great marker of the holiday season: Christmas shopping. Black Friday kicked off the shopping season last weekend with sales and discounts at many brick-and-mortar retailers.

For those of us who had a few too many glasses of Cabernet on Thursday, or who are otherwise less inclined to brave the crowds on Black Friday, there is always Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday is the Monday following Thanksgiving.

Young people presently in their teens to early 20s have never known a world without the Internet and scarcely remember life before the iPhone.
