so apparently apple is developing a way to detect if you are in a event/gig and auto disable your phones camera to stop you from filming it. supposedly it uses infrared sensors to detect where you are and turns off the camera. This is fucking atrocious if you think about the repercussions of this kind of thing happening.
how about disabling your camera at protests/arrests being made/any type of large public event where people could be stabbed, shot or cracked in the head by police or military so there is no quick way to document any of the hundreds of daily atrocities happening around the world?
here is a link to the story:
one of the comments below the story pretty much sums up my thoughts on it:
"If they can cut off the cameras at these events, they can at a political rally. How about individual police cars have similar devices and can cut off video stopping filming of their arrests. The possibly for abuse is endless."
