    Lol, you may be on to something there . Apple could be our best ally.

    i wonder if mubarek would still be in power if he had this technology...... this is just begging to be abused by governments. theres really no other application for this other than to help dictators across the globe.

    It also aids the police in giving beatdowns as well, as mentioned by others. There was a particularly violent attack earlier this year in Cali that included the police losing control of a dog that attacked a mother with her baby in her arms that would have just been hearsay had it not all been caught on video. I can't believe that Apple really even bothered to patent this mess. What other company would even consider using it?

    An excellent point...give the bad guys a way to disable peoples' phones too, why don't-cha!!? Amazing... This could lead to an incredibly disruptive terrorist attack where nobody would receive the emergency alerts because the terrorists have disabled everyone's phones in the immediate area of the attack to increase the collateral damage factor. Again...brilliant! Way to go Apple. I now have another reason to hate them.

Now this shouldn't fall under copyright law if the company stands to make no money off of it. Another example, my girlfriend went to a concert the other night. She took videos of a song or two I guess, but she doesn't plan to upload it to youtube or redistribute it. While she is not posting them to yt or fb, I bet you anything other people there will have recorded video from there phone and will be uploading it on yt, fb, etc. Now of course it is stupid to issue DCMA take down for copyright infringement over such footage but who knows how many people the record labels or RIAA have already taken down videos through there own power or DMCAs. This used to be called fair use, but today it is copyright infringement, so in that regard, I disagree.
    OK, so I suppose I was thinking more along the lines of redistribution for profit, such as when someone goes into a movie theater with a high-end video camera and records the entire new-release movie, then creates DVD copies and sells the bootleg videos on the street corners. Or where someone goes to a concert and records the audio of the concert on high-end stereo gear such as a pair of mics sewn into their shirt and a portable digital recorder (Digital recorders), or simply takes the Tascam or Zoom recorder and uses the X/Y mics built-in to do the same, then just like above burns CDs that they sell for profit. I totally missed the Youtube/FB phenomenon aspect of recording of copyrighted material.

    and you are 100% correct about the days of common decency being gone. the last time i was in a theater there was someone with a BT headset. they weren't using the phone or anything just had the headset on, and I was distracted the ENTIRE time by the blue flashing light on his headset...

    We are lucky here in Austin, TX. Most of the movie theaters (especially the "Alamo Drafthouse" chain) have very strong disclaimers at the beginning of a movie about not texting or talking on your cellphone during a movie. Even more importantly, they actually enforce it!

    As far as your situation with the blue LED goes, I would have politely said something, but I can understand why that might not always be the best or even a possible solution. That kind of stuff and/or screaming kids makes me want to stay home and wait for the Blu-ray sometimes. lol

    I only go to Alamo now since they don't put up with that kind of thing. You get one warning and the second time you are gone with no refund, I have still had to complain about some people but after that first warning they straighten up.

    I have thrown change at people before that refuse to stop checking their FB in other theaters that don't seem to care what people do. That is a huge pet peeve of mine and it is a great sign of disrespect and poor upbringing.
