So people are hating on Apple for trying to protect the property of another company?

Also not sure why anyone would take an iPhone to a concert, unless you like damaging/losing £500 gadgets.

This was "news" a few weeks ago and is just misinterpreted bullpoop.

The ordeal is: Apple filed a patent application that describes an infra-red system that can trigger mobile phone actions depending on the context of what is happening. Detailed explanation is here: http://www.patentlyapple.com/patent...os-cameras.html

One of the examples of what this could be used for was the concert thing, as well as another example where you could get information on a museum tour just by pointing your phone towards an exhibit.

This are just THEORETICAL EXAMPLES and in no way it means they're going to implement and use it. Apple patents stuff all the time and most of it they don't even use. Something like this would also mean millions of dollars of infrastructure to build these IR emitters into concert places and as said before, it was just an example that whoever thought of the idea put to illustrate it.

People love to freak out at this kind of stuff, but really, it won't happen. Negative publicity would be too big and no one would buy iPhones again. Seriously, it's just stupid to think it would happen.

You know what's ruining gigs these days... people and cameras/camera phones. All you can see are little lcd screens lit up all around you. Last one I was at I swear the people in front watched the whole thing through their phones.

Protect? That is a jest?

I'm surprised they don't patent that.... " we helped our users not taking the devices they bought to concerts where they might have damaged it"...... has a ring about it!

Surely all the user would need to do is put the iphone in air plane mode and then continue recording? Surely no signal of any sort can be sent and recieved by the iphone whilst its in air plane mode?.

Cheers for clearing that up, had my doubts anyway due to the source being the sun.

As usual its just more pathetic jealous hatred towards a company.

It's calling it property that is the jest.

I love the way the AppleSheep get their knickers in a twist at the slightest negative publicity.

Apples tracking your ever move and feeding it in the I-Net. (it will become self aware at some point)
