With all the talk of banning camera phones in the workplace, the locker room and elsewhere, people have been trying to come up with other less restrictive solutions. We've already talked about the idea of forcing camera phones to click loudly - though, you know that people who are doing "bad" things with them will figure out a way around that. Now, however, one company has come up with technology that they say will stop camera phones from working as cameras in certain locations. I'm guessing it's similar to the technology that forces phones to stop ringing in certain zones as well. Of course, you can just imagine how pissed off some camera phone owners are going to be when they try to take a memorable picture of something and discover it's a "no camera zone". People don't buy camera phones to be told they can only take pictures in some places. This seems like an overreaction to the technology.
