Apple patent would disable smartphones by location
Apple has been granted a patent that would make your smartphone useless when entering an area deemed too sensitive for mobile photo and video. And photo and video aren't the only things that might be restricted. The patent, granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, would force devices to go to sleep entirely after entering certain areas. That means no Twitter, no Facebook, no calling, no texting.
