New iPhone has DHS and FBI technology to let them control your phone

quote:

First, Apple has been granted a new patent that allows the company to command its devices to shut down camera and microphone functionality on any iPhone or iPad based on its specific geographic location. The technology makes it possible for the firm, at the behest of government officials, to create a “geo fence” around any venue or event which is identified as a security priority or sensitive area.


quote:

Second, and quite possibly even more disturbing than Apple’s ability to directly access key recording features on our wireless devices, is the revelation that hackers breached an FBI Regional Cyber Action Team laptop computer and gained access to highly sensitive files that were later released on the internet. In those files were the unique device identifiers, user names, address books, and other personal details belonging to over 12 million Apple subscribers.

This suggests one of two possibilities. Either the FBI illegally hacked Apple’s subscriber database to acquire this information, or Apple willingly turned this information over to them.

are you doubting Apple has a patent for geo-fence technology?

or do you doubt an FBI agent had 12 million Apple unique user information on his laptop?

For a company known for their famous anti big brother commercial in the 80's, they have become the exact opposite.

re: New iPhone has DHS and FBI technology to let them control your phone
I don't doubt either, in fact I am sure it is true. All phone companies will. Who cares if the FBI has that stuff on their laptop? By law phone companies need to turn a LOT more than that over whenever it is requested so it being on a laptop isn't a big deal. Our privacy laws are all gone due to the reactionary fricks we have in this country and them allowing the patriot act to be passed. It doesn't matter if you vote Republican or Democrat....if you vote for either you are voting for less privacy.

ETA: the charge for my iPhone hit my card yesterday which means it shipped!

and approved by a judge.

In this case they are SELLING your information for a profit, no request necessary. Private information. Then they warrantless wiretap you...good times.
