No, Mr. Bezos, We Want Devices not Services - The Mac Observer
Christina Wodtke stashed this in covering eyes and hoping it'll go away
Imagine that you’re out bike riding with a friend. He’s hit by a driver, knocked down and injured. The car speeds away, so you try to take a picture of his license plate. The iPhone suddenly shuts down the camera. The GPS system says you’re near a concert hall, and IP law says you can’t photograph there. Or you’re at a political convention. You try to take a photo of a politician patting a female delegate on the fanny. Again, by government request, your camera is disabled in the convention center. These are not fantasies.
Something to keep in mind the day Amazon begins giving devices away for free:
"The problem with that is that the device really doesn’t belong to the customer and control is lost. Examples are becoming alarming."
