Traditional vs. Modern Interview Techniques
"In investigations of any sort, interviewing can be a much valued tool. Partially due to the influence of the media, but also because of law enforcement's own love of the silver screen, our methods of gathering physical evidence and conducting criminal investigations are almost common knowledge to the public. Anyone with a television set and enough free time can learn how almost any police operation is conducted, courtesy of several "real life" cop shows that are currently all the rage." -by Christopher Dillingham

Look Ma No Wires
As we approach the 100th anniversary of the first wireless telephone call (see timeline), applications for wireless technology seem both limitless and frustratingly out of reach.
