Personal Electronic Devices; iPODS, PDAs and Cell Phones a Forensics Discussion

iPods, PDAs, and cell phones continue to merge in form, fit, and functionality and now include data acquisition (cameras, keyboards, usb ports, etc), data aggregation, and storage (some up to 80 gigabytes), and communications capabilities (IR, Bluetooth, wireless internet access, and cellular telephone). This presentation provides insights into the features and capabilities of such systems, their possible uses in unethical and possibly unlawful activities, and as discussion of the concepts of forensic analyses and approaches useful in combating such uses.
