Implications of mobile technology on today’s digital forensic methods?

Mobile technology, social media, and cloud computing have radically altered our current digital forensic methods.  How have these methods been affected, and what other changes will these new technologies bring?

The easy and obvious answer is that these technologies have made an investigation much more complex.  It becomes more difficult to recover the data and to do the things we normally would do in an investigation.  It calls for some specialized expertise in working with an IT professional.

The opportunities though are great, because these new sources and technologies often reveal the unknown or the unexpected.
