The Untold Story: How the iPhone Blew Up the Wireless Industry
It was a late morning in the fall of 2006. Almost a year earlier, Steve Jobs had tasked about 200 of Apple's top engineers with creating the iPhone. Yet here, in Apple's boardroom, it was clear that the prototype was still a disaster. It wasn't just buggy, it flat-out didn't work. A Wired News Story

A glimpse into a Wireless Future
Since 2002, the Wireless World Initiative (WWI) has been working on a number of user-centric wireless systems that integrate what is currently an extremely disjointed mess of networks and protocols.

Conducting A Custodial Behavior Analysis Interview
Investigators who attend our training seminars learn the value of conducting a Behavior Analysis Interview (BAI) as a reliable means of eliminating innocent suspects and identifying the guilty suspect during the course of an investigation. During this structured, 30-40 minute non-accusatory interview, the suspect is asked both investigative questions and specialized behavior-provoking questions. The latter questions are designed to be answered differently by suspects who are innocent of the issue under investigation as opposed to those who are guilty. The suspect’s responses to the behavior provoking questions serve as the primary basis for rendering opinions of guilt or innocence. A John Reid Article

Ensure Admissibility of Digital Images
Digital imaging tools, such as digital cameras, photo CD discs and image handling software, can be important assets to the police department as it gathers and presents evidence. But as with any other tools, you must have standard operating procedures (SOPs) in place to ensure that evidence you gather and present will be accepted by courts of law.

Electrostatic Dust Lifting on Metallic Surfaces Using Automotive Window Tinting Film as a Nonconductive Barrier
Electrostatic devices use a high-voltage electrical current to charge a surface and attract dust particles left from shoe outsoles and other objects to a metallic film. Placing this film in direct contact with a conductive substrate, such as a metal vehicle, can cause damage to the film and increases the risk of injury to the analyst and damage to property. The use of a nonconductive film barrier allows for the use of the metallic film and the electrostatic dust lifter in obtaining shoe impressions from metal surfaces such as automobiles and countertops.

Building a better bulletproof vest
Bullets don’t just bounce off Superman, they don’t even slow him down. Real-life police and soldiers can’t say the same, even when they’re wearing a bulletproof jacket of Kevlar or something similar. Although bullets don’t penetrate–the bulletproof material spreads their force–the force is still transmitted to the tissue underneath the bulletproof shell, causing severe bruising or even organ damage.

Trends- The Increasing Menace of Counterfeiting
Counterfeit products and materials are knock-off, bootleg, pirated or other illegally produced materials that are produced and sold in violation of the Intellectual Property Rights of others or in a manner that fraudulently represent their quality or origin.

High Technology-FaceFinder
It's called FaceFinder, and since launching this summer, the smart sculpture resembling a gargantuan alarm clock has functioned like a high-tech photo booth in a courtyard off Sunset and Vine.
