Every year. Every damned year. Well, these people caught me on a morning when I feel unwell and decidedly curmudgeonly. So here’s their email and my reply. This is Helena from Compelson, the creators of MobilEdit.
Unfortunately we didn’t receive any invitation from you, that is time to vote…
Any chance we could participate?
By the way we just finished tests the same phone – iPhone SE – with our Phone Forensic Express and Cellebrite solution and we were shocked what we are able to extract compare to them.
And my reply:
As I mentioned two years ago, the forensic community decides who is nominated and put through to the voting stage. I publish that nominations are open on both my website, Facebook, and Twitter. I’m not in the habit of circulating emails to every potential nominee in order to have the garnish nominations or votes. I would say that it is up to your company to look out for such events. The nominations are usually opened in January so please check the website then.
Unfortunately I can’t do anything about it this year, the people have spoken.
I’m going to post every email I receive where people complain about not being nominated or being “left out”. I’m fed up of this and I hope that by doing this these emails will stop.
