Plaso (plaso langar að safna öllu) is the Python based back-end engine used by tools such as log2timeline for automatic creation of a super timelines. The goal of log2timeline (and thus plaso) is to provide a single tool that can parse various log files and forensic artifacts from computers and related systems, such as network equipment to produce a single correlated timeline. This timeline can then be easily analysed by forensic investigators/analysts, speeding up investigations by correlating the vast amount of information found on an average computer system. Plaso is intended to be applied for creating super timelines but also supports creating [http://blog.kiddaland.net/2013/02/targeted-timelines-part-i.html targeted timelines].
  
A "Palm" is a commonly referred to as a small-scale (hand-held) computer that runs Palm's PalmOS software.

The Plaso project site also provides [[4n6time]], formerly "l2t_Review", which is a cross-platform forensic tool for timeline creation and review by [[David Nides]].

Palm Computing was founded by Jeff Hawkins, Donna Dubinsky and Ed Colligan.  The original purpose of the company was to create handwriting recognition software for other devices (Graffiti).  The initial idea for the devices came from Hawkins' habit of carrying a block of wood in his pocket.
