Comparing software tools

While looking at software relating to digital video earlier today I came across a handy website called alternativeTo. It's a useful means of comparing software applications and getting an idea of the tools that are out there to help perform a particular task. AlternativeTo gives a brief summary of each piece of software along with screenshots of the software in action. Another useful feature is that searches can be filtered by whether the tools are free or open source.

Mobile forensics

Anyone who heard Brad Glisson's talk at the DPC event on digital forensics may be interested in the paper 'A comparison of forensic evidence recovery techniques for a windows mobile smart phone' published in Digital Investigation Volume 8, Issue 1, July 2011, Pages 23-36. Interesting to see what was recovered, and how the different tools behave.
