Apple was just granted a patent that would allow smartphone cameras to be blocked in public places.
Apple has been granted a patent for technology that would stop smartphone cameras from being used at concerts.
The patent describes a smartphone camera that would receive coded infrared signals beamed in public places that can alter what you see on your camera.
Simply put it would temporarily disable your smartphone and prevent you from recording the concert. The technology could also be used to prevent video recording in movie theaters.
Basically, Apple is now blocking the feature that helped create the insanely large mobile phone market, cameras. The whole point of putting a high power camera on our phones was so that we could take pictures at any time, in any place. Whether that be a concert or a fucking movie, I want the freedom to take pictures wherever and whenever. When the fuck did we change from the land of the free to the land of the do what you are told when you are told? Are we living in some sort of weird communist dictatorship?
How are people going to believe me when I say I went to go see Toby Kieth without any pictures? How will people know I saw Batman v. Superman if I didn't take a selfie in my seat and check into the location?
Apple is trying to fuck us. It makes perfect sense why they didn't want to let the FBI hack into that terrorists phone in California. They swooped in and got the public rallying behind them so that on a lowly Thursday they could go under the radar and fuck us all over. No one is paying attention right now, everyone is focused on making it to the 4th. Those cheeky, cheeky bastards.
I've been an OG hater of Apple for 3 years at minimum now. I just don't get why everyone loves them, all their shit sucks complete cock. My Lenovo would destroy any MacBook in a fight to the death, no holds bard. And my phone.... well my phone sucks but iPhones are just as bad. I don't want to compare my phone to the iPhone because it would be a close race to absolute uselessness, but I can't remember the last time I was with someone who had an iPhone thats battery didn't die after 2 hours of being with them. Sorry, but Apple sucks and I didn't even mention the Apple Watch.
