Comment What information is not available elsewhere? (Score 1) 383

What information are they really going to get from a phone that they can't get somewhere else?

Call history is going to be available from the carrier. Message history from the carrier. Email is stored on a server somewhere. All those cloud apps are on a server somewhere. And if you've got a wipe function for your phone.. isn't it likely you have a backup of your phone somewhere.. that could be retrieved for analysis?

Comment Smallbasic project from MS (Score 1) 799

Work through the included PDF document examples, it basically does what the old qbasic provided, a quick IDE / interpreter and easy access to some text functions ( for the classic 'Hello World' and then easy access to some graphical drawing functions, even includes a turtle).
