" If Apple Can Do It So Can The Cops...What A Great Way For The Police To Shut Down Public Scrutiny !"

PHONE users may soon be stopped from filming at concerts as a result of new Apple technology......The leading computer company plans to build a system that will sense when people are trying to video live events and turn off their cameras.

A patent application filed by Apple revealed how the technology would work.

If an iPhone were held up and used to film during a concert infra-red sensors would detect it.These sensors would then contact the iPhone and automatically disable its camera function.

People would still be able to send text messages and make calls....The new technology is seen as an attempt to protect the interests of event organisers and broadcasters who have exclusive rights to concerts.

The companies are often left frustrated when videos of shows appear online via websites such as YouTube which let users watch them for free....Apple filed for the patent 18 months ago and it is thought if successful it will help them negotiate deals with record labels to sell content through iTunes.

We all know what this is intended to do. But think about other applications of it.

What is in there that would stop the government to use it to prevent us from filming demonstrations, police behavior, or other unflattering situations that they would prefer not to be embarrassed by?

Not just that. But what about the camera turning ON instead of off? What better way to see and hear what your political opponent, or other undesirables are doing?
