    Apple assumes role of Big Brother, by developing patent to automatically disable iPhone cameras at concerts and Police incidents.

    The patent, which many see as a major assault against personal freedom, explains that in the presence of certain infrared signals, an iPhone could be controlled by outside sources to shut down its video capturing capabilities. This technology will be used to disable iPhones from filming police abuse scenarios, such as what took place back in May at the 2011 annual Wheeler Block Party at Western Illinois University.
