Quote:(NaturalNews) As annoying as many are, the steady stream of garbled, shaky video clips of musical concert performances that get uploaded to YouTube every day could become a thing of the past, at least for Apple iPhone users. According to a recent report from Business Insider, Apple has filed a patent for new technology that is capable of automatically disabling iPhones from being able to video record live concerts, which in turn prevents users from violating copyright laws by eventually sharing such videos with others.http://www.naturalnews.com/032723_Big_Br...Phone.html
The patent, which many see as a major assault against personal freedom, explains that in the presence of certain infrared signals, an iPhone could be controlled by outside sources to shut down its video capturing capabilities. Though posited in light of copyrighted musical performances, such technology could also be used to disable iPhones from filming police abuse scenarios such as what took place back in May at the 2011 annual Wheeler Block Party at Western Illinois University (http://www.naturalnews.com/032318_b...), or the recent case of Miami police who gunned down Raymond Herisse and destroyed a witness' camera phone (http://www.naturalnews.com/032655_p...).
Just another reason not to own an apple product (made through slavery at Foxx Conn worker prison camp in China)
What workers fought to the death in the West to outlaw has just be shipped abroad out of sight and out of mind.
Did apple do anything about the tracking tech in their phones was exposed to the wider public? I doubt it.
