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.
