Private Means Not in Public

The Daily Mail frets about surveillance cameras that can actually zoom in to what you're doing on your smart phone.
As part of extensive police monitoring during the tournament, camera operators scanned the spectators looking for suspicious looking packages and aggressive behaviour.

They then chose to zoom in on one man who was texting - although it turned out he was simply writing about the poor quality of the rugby match.

Experts warned the fact that the cameras were able to do this raises concerns about breeches of individual's privacy.

You get no sympathy from me.

If you're in public, don't do things you don't want other people to see.


  1. Yeah like they guy standing next to, or behind you can't just look over at what you're doing.

  2. I'm fine with them taping us in public, if we're allowed to do the same to them when they're in public.
