Forensic image acquisition is an important part of the process of
after-the-fact incident response and evidence collection. Digital forensic
investigators acquire, preserve and manage digital evidence as part of
criminal and civil court cases; they examine violations of organizational
policy; and they analyze cyber attacks.
The "5" in Naztech's new Roadstar 5 Car Charger refers to the
abundant five ports offered by the device, intended to end in-vehicle
debates on who gets to charge their device next. Naztech says that its new
charger delivers superior charging power and speed while protecting tablet
and smartphone batteries and motherboards.
It's hard to go a day without seeing interesting and compelling Indiegogo
or Kickstarter projects that feature the Raspberry Pi, Pine 64 or the Intel
Edison inside some sort of embedded device or standalone computer or
laptop. Last fall, I stumbled across one such project that billed itself as
"the first $99 Raspberry Pi desktop", and I felt the need to have
When it comes to covering my cell phone, I tend toward minimalism. I like
to buy the smallest (although still powerful) phone possible, so the thought
of adding a bulky case seems wrong. I also don't like screen protectors,
because they generally get cloudy, and they don't feel as nice when using
the screen. more>>
I have a favorite saying: "If you are a systems administrator, you
have the keys to the kingdom. If you are an open-source programmer, you
don't know which or how many kingdoms you have the keys to." We send

Ascensio System SIA boasts that its ONLYOFFICE office and productivity
suite combines the best from the MS Office and Google Docs worlds.

When I use OS X, I really like the Fluid app for making standalone Web
applications. The problem is, Fluid isn't free unless you want the basic
version. I don't mind paying for an application (and I did pay for Fluid),
but it seems like something as simple as a single site browser shouldn't

The prospect of privacy protection and occulting your smartphone's IP
address with a VPN are sufficient selling points, but the ability to watch
your Spanish-dubbed Turkish telenovellas while on the beach in Tahiti should
seal the deal for real. more>>
An IT megatrend in progress involves the shift from legacy monolithic apps
running on enterprise storage to systems of engagement that interact with
users, collect real-time data from many sources and store it in elastic and
shared data services. more>>
Although Linux always has been a diverse ecosystem, once upon a time, just a
handful of Linux distributions, or distros, existed. Do you recall
Yggrasil, Trans-Ameritech and the original S.u.S.E. (which begat SuSE, SUSE
and openSUSE)? Today, literally hundreds of Linux flavors exist, each with
its own unique offerings.
Years ago, we put out a request for articles on home automation. About
the time Eureka came out on TV, people wanted to have their very own
SARAH (Self Actuated Residential Automated Habitat), and it seemed like
the perfect time for nerds everywhere to make their houses smart. more>>
