Apple One Step Closer to Having Camera Disabling Capabilities


This is probably a fairly controversial idea. Apple has been awarded the patent to use infrared technology to shut down your phones camera whenever they'd like. The claim is to stop annoying concertgoer's or prevent people from filming sensitive places. Is this REALLY such a problem that Apple needs to make this extraordinarily intrusive step?

What do you guys think of this? How would you feel if suddenly your camera got shut off? Or would you pleased to see an annoying concertgoer get shut down? I'll guess we'll have to wait and see what actually becomes of this. If you want to read the whole patent you can check it out HERE.
