Parse Droid Time - Utility to parse Android Unix timestamps in CSV files
#!/usr/bin/python
#
# pdtime = parse Droid time - Utility to parse Android Unix timestamps in csv files
#
# Given a csv file or list of csv files containing Android timestamps, create a "parsed" directory and
# output new csv files with timestamps parsed in human-readable format, with no timezone adjustments.
# Android timestamps should be stored in UTC/GMT, and are parsed as such.
#
# Sample timestamp: 1311341729264, Android has three extra numbers than regular UNIX timestamps, because
# it stores UNIX epoch in milliseconds. It must be divided by 1000 to make it a normal UNIX timestamp.
