    Habeas Hard Drive gives a thumbs up to Losing the Signal: The Untold Story Behind the Extraordinary Rise and Spectacular Fall of BlackBerry. The book chronicles the life of the BlackBerry, a fabulous product that's going extinct. It also offers a clear lesson in how not to present technical evidence in court.

    Habeas Hard Drive was dismayed at the ruckus that unfolded in North Las Vegas earlier this month, when the retiring police chief revealed some details from a six-month-old child porn investigation. Police had responded last fall to Mayor John Lee's report that he found images on his iPad he believed to be child pornography.

This story skims the surface of a deep reservoir filled with unhappy tales about the many ways electronically stored information (ESI) can get away from you.

  • It was a cold and rainy San Francisco afternoon. I sat sweating in the conference room of a gritty skyscraper downtown.

    It was a grey October day, the kind of day when a guy likes to cozy up next to a bank of servers to keep warm, when the Teacher first called me. "They think I'm nuts" were the words emanating from the phone. Well, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you. I sat up and went to my desk, away from the noisy fans cooling off all those Gigahertzes. "What's the problem, Miss?"The young woman explained that she was a not-yet-tenured teacher in a New England (greyer there than here) high school with a problem. Seems that a student in one of her classes was repeating things in the classroom that she had uttered only the night

    A student asked me an interesting question today, regarding what I foresee in the field of computer forensics in the coming years: 5, 10, & 50. Having not thought about it before , my answers surprised me a bit.

    In the privacy of our studies, offices, libraries, or wherever it is we have our computers, it may seem that we are alone, with no one looking over our shoulders. But every document we draft, every step through the Internet we take, is creating tracks through the digital environment in our computers
