Police Now Can Switch off iPhone Camera and Wi-Fi
« on: June 02, 2014, 12:58:26 PM »
Police throughout the globe have been embarrassed to see online videos of their officers pepper spraying tied captives. In our age of mobile gadgets the pictures can be uploaded online in seconds, making supervisors to answer the questions.






But now the police may not need to fear scrutiny anymore, because Apple has recently patented a piece of technology that would allow the authorities and police to block data transmission, including video and photos, whenever they like. All they need to do is decide that a public gathering or venue is deemed “sensitive” and needs to be protected from externalities. In this case Apple will enable them to switch off all its gear. The developers insist that the affected locations are normally cinemas, theaters and concert grounds, but Apple admits it could also be used in covert police or government operations that may need complete “blackout” conditions.
In the meantime, privacy outfits point out that it could also be used to prevent such whistle blowers as Edward Snowden from shooting pictures and sharing them online. In response, Apple claimed that the wireless transmission of sensitive data to a remote source is a threat to security, with the sensitive data being anything from classified government data to answers to an exam administered in an academic setting.
Anyway, the fact is that Apple has patented the means to transmit an encoded signal to all wireless gadgets, commanding them to disable recording functions. The developers reveal that the policies would be activated by GPS, and Wi-Fi or mobile base-stations that would ring-fence around a building or a sensitive area in order to prevent mobile cameras from taking pictures or recording video.

Well now, if they have ACCESS to switch on or off a phone cam or wifi, they also have the ability and ACCESS to switch it off for other reasons other than just hiding their own actions. Hellllloooo.

They can switch it off anytime they want!!! How about that??

This is why I carry a very small sony digi cam that does NOT require wifi. I would not DARE video or pic an officer hurting someone anyway...because...whether I witness it, video it or snapshot it, the almighty is upstairs watching the truth with NO DAMNED wifi and APPLE won't have anything to do with the truth.

So WIFI is a fake connection to a real world that can be blotted out by a strong wind created by a buffalo fart. Think about it. Just sayin. =)
