Sure, because The Sun is such a reliable source.

And your comment about Apple 'wanting to know where you are' is just plain dumb, Buck. Do you even realize that this overblown accusation has already been addressed in a software update, and do you realize that they never were tracking anyone?

I know you hate Apple products, because they symbolize the dreaded liberal to you, but this is really silly.

re: #1 Charles

You really are funny (silly?) when you tell me why I say something.
Actually I DON'T hate Apple products. I do make fun of fan boys that try and say that APPLE is somehow perfect in every way.

I actually worked as a consultant for APPLE many years ago, and I still have friends who work there.

Hate is a strong word for you to throw around.

The only thing that has been addressed is the lack of any security on that ability, not the ability itself.

AND this article referrers to "patent application filed by Apple".

This is why I hate linking anything. You really need to put out a list of acceptable sources. I am not the only one who seems to cross that line.

A simple google search shows that the original link is not alone,

It was also on Slashdot. I don't think you can say they hate Apple...

re: #2 Buck

Meanwhile, you made a lot of false claims in your post, about Apple wanting to "know where the iPhone user is."

That's just false, Buck.

And don't be surprised when other phone-camera manufacturers do exactly the same thing, because the fact is that you don't have the legal right to record concerts.

It's funny when people get all upset because their "right" to do something illegally is being taken away.

re: #5 Charles

Actually, Apple should be protected by the PATENT so that other phone-camera manufacturers don't do the same thing.

But, OK....I am not sure why you are acting so defensive..

re: #6 Buck

"Defensive?" Hardly. You made false claims in your post and I'm pointing it out, while noticing that you refuse to admit it or correct the post.

8 Buck  Thu, Jun 16, 2011 11:54:14am

It was a throw away line...

"Now we know why they were so interested in where the iPhone user was...."

False claim? The patent is all about knowing where the phone is while it films.

But I will change it. It obviously is a distraction from what is an interesting story.

Simple solution. Take a regular camera and try to hide it from the security guards.

10 Virginia Plain  Thu, Jun 16, 2011 12:24:39pm

Also, how soon before other carry infrared devices that can turn off somebody's phone, in order to cover up any wrongdoing?

gotta admit, its a very believable Apple move.

re: #10 Virginia Plain

similar things already exist, I think or kind of, mobile cell phone jammers.
