Apple has patented technology that would allow your cell phone camera to be disabled in certain locations. According to the patent application, it would be used in places like concert venues and movie theaters, but others worry that law enforcement will use it to prevent people from recording police activity.
She says government use of the technology would also violate the First Amendment, and well as deprive people access to their private property without a warrant.
"The technology exists." Says Juan Guevarra Torres with E-novvations Technology and Marketing." He says the technology wouldn't affect other brands. "I don't think it's possible. I think you would have to be able to control the operating system, hence only Apple products would be effected.
Tech bloggers disagree how it would work. Some say it would be an infrared signal that would disabled phones it detected that had the technology embedded in it, others think it would be like a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. Regardless says Retired FBI Special Agent in Charge Don Clark, it's a bad idea. "We can develop in this country almost anything we want. We have the ability to do that but do we really want to?"
