Apple's 'spy planes' raise privacy concerns
Apple is using military-grade cameras for its forthcoming "Maps" program for iPhones and iPads which will compete directly with Google Maps. Apple has used the technology in 20 cities after its acquisition last year of C3 Technologies, a Swedish 3D mapping company. The cameras are similar to cameras used by intelligence services to identify insurgents in Afghanistan and are so powerful they can show objects just four inches wide and film people inside their homes through windows and skylights, raising privacy concerns.
