Top 10 Apps Banned in the Office | Inc.com. I love this. I am going to take a leap of faith, and assume that there are some biglaw firms that also ban these apps. I understand the need for large organizations to monitor and control Internet use in these days and times. However, this is just one more reason I am a solo practitioner. If I want to conduct a Google + Hangout, or play Angry Birds at the office, or log on to Google + to connect with other lawyers, or even watch a NetFlix movie, there is no one around to ban my usage. Does your office ban certain software and sites?
