cellebrite hardware can be picked up from electronics recycling centers. hell I had one of their devices used to copy data from any cell phone to any cell phone. It was still registered and activated when I got it. It was given to me in a load of computer equipment along with 3 or 4 others.

I think I eventually gave it to a Goodwill.

Nice phone-hacking technology you got there.  Would be a shame if something were it....

Cellebrite sounds like a toothpaste.

Don Gato: Cellebrite sounds like a toothpaste.

I would have guessed it was a laser for burning cellulite for use in liposuction.

Funny you should say that:

In completely unrelated news, upcoming versions of Signal will be periodically fetching files to place in app storage. These files are never used for anything inside Signal and never interact with Signal software or data, but they look nice, and aesthetics are important in software. Files will only be returned for accounts that have been active installs for some time already, and only probabilistically in low percentages based on phone number sharding. We have a few different versions of files that we think are aesthetically pleasing, and will iterate through those slowly over time. There is no other significance to these files.

(Marlinspike claims he acquired the device "when I saw a small package fall off a truck ahead of me"),

That's funny.  I wonder how long he was following the truck around.
