LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Audiences may soon need to put their phones away at live concerts after Apple patented a technology that blocks the iPhone's camera feature.
The new software, which hasn't been officially introduced by Apple, would reportedly allow venues to use an infrared beam to disable a mobile phone's camera, preventing users from taking videos and photos.
Somewhere I read that the next iPhone's new digital (only) headphone jack will be awesome because it will allow advanced equalizer features. What will they think of next? A music database that doesn't corrupt itself regularly? Software updates that don't brick your hardware? Nah.
