who makes the decision whether an event can be recorded or not....i guess its apple...
Fears for civil liberties as Apple patents technology that could remotely disable protesters' smartphones
•Technology would broadcast a signal to automatically shut down smartphone features, or even the entire phone
•Apple claims it would most likely be used to prevent copyright theft or to guarantee privacy in sensitive areas
•Civil liberties campaigners fear it could be misused by the authorities to silence 'awkward citizens'
Apple have received a patent for a technology that could allow the police to disable protesters smartphones, it has emerged.
The new technology would act as a 'kill switch' for smartphones, disabling any cameras on the devices and blocking their connection to mobile
Apple stresses that the function would be most likely used to prevent copyright theft, such as in cinemas, or to stop phone cameras being used in
inappropriate places, like department store changing rooms.
However, in the filing for U.S. Patent No. 8,254,902, the company adds that 'covert police or government operations may require complete "blackout"
so how many patents are they allowed....and why dont they disclose the "covert" operations of the iphone in our pockets...
anyway....if theres a company on earth thats getting ahead of itself, and needs to be regulated...its apple...closely followed by google....
they use our personal information....to make profits
where is the line...im sure our liberties are getting messed with here!
so the apple with a bite missing from it.....adam and temptation......hmmmmmmm
im tempted to throw it in the bin....well, it will be obsolete next year when they release the iphone infinity, and stop making phone chargers for the
current model...tut tut
