Business: Cell phone forensic company sells products for "free"

This is a departure from the main, science and technology thrust of this blog - I want to talk about the business side of forensics. The motivation is to highlight the government-industry partnership that exists in some countries, such as the grant program discussed in this Philadelphia Business Journal article, to push forensic tools and procedures out into the law enforcement community. The company profiled in the article (BKForensics) got into cell phone forensics through a small US Federal Government grant and then grew from there. This is also a great "lesson" for all of you budding entrepreneurs out there!
