One bad apple rots the rest


Just as bad as Microsoft:
Apple has patented a piece of technology which would allow government and police to block transmission of information, including video and photographs, from any public gathering or venue they deem “sensitive”, and “protected from externalities.”

­In other words, these powers will have control over what can and cannot be documented on wireless devices during any public event.
And while the company says the affected sites are to be mostly cinemas, theaters, concert grounds and similar locations, Apple Inc. also says “covert police or government operations may require complete ‘blackout’ conditions.”

“Additionally,” Apple says,” the wireless transmission of sensitive information to a remote source is one example of a threat to security. This sensitive information could be anything from classified government information to questions or answers to an examination administered in an academic setting.”

The statement led many to believe that authorities and police could now use the patented feature during protests or rallies to block the transmission of video footage and photographs from the scene, including those of police brutality, which at times of major events immediately flood news networks and video websites.
Apple patented the means to transmit an encoded signal to all wireless devices, commanding them to disable recording functions.

Those policies would be activated by GPS, and WiFi or mobile base-stations, which would ring-fence ("geofence") around a building or a “sensitive area” to prevent phone cameras from taking pictures or recording video.

Apple may implement the technology, but it would not be Apple's decision to activate the “feature” – it would be down governments, businesses and network owners to set such policies, analyzes ZDNet technology website.

Having invented one of the most sophisticated mobile devices, Apple now appears to be looking for ways to restrict its use.

    1. What an epic example of a truly ignorant, American consumer, insignificant, dumbass response to this article. We all deserve to be huddled into a corner, made to be malleable masses that do and think what our government dictates. Amen.

  3. Nice expose, Penny.

    While I despise microsoft, Apple is not a better alternative. They're worse. They offer no advantage, and have many disadvantages. And this is without taking into account their fascism. Apple always has been rubbish. They are sold as "the underdog", the little guy, sensitive to customers. Nothing could be further from the truth. What one gets with Apple is a fraction of the available hardware and software choices for a higher cost. Apple uses their smaller than Microsoft market share to maximise their profits. They don't need to spend the extra costs of comparability and variety, so can squeeze a bit extra from their customers for delivering less. They have always been tight with all the wrong corporate and government people, just like Microsoft (and Sun), and played on their phony status as a people oriented company who cares. As I don't need to use an Apple product, they are one zio-friendly rip-off house I can avoid completely. And I do.

  4. Apple are insidious and perfidious.
    The already mentioned aspects of Apple are true.
    The sheeple want the latest Apple gadgets made by slaves with suicide netting at their dorms and are blind to that.
    This WILL be used to control sousveillance.

    I did wonder how this new method of checking authority could be controlled.
    Funny how the MSM denounce "tyrannical regimes" for shutting down internet access.
    I'm off to check out custom ROMs for Android.

    1. GPS and WiFi are irrelevant to this cellular block on recording. If you have a dumb phone and a dumb camera then there won't be a problem. Keep technology dumb!
