Yet none of these problems seems significant enough to slow camera-phone acceptance. "With the quality of the pictures improving, the bandwidth available to ship increasing and the prices continuing to drop, we expect sales of camera phones to rise significantly for the next few years," said Strother at InStat, which expects consumers to buy 102 million camera phones in 2004.

Okay, I think we have gotten your point. And to a degree, I agree with some of your points

1) Yes, the FCC should have more important things to worry about than camera phones. Really, it's their job to takes care of the airwaves, not the features of the devices that use those airwaves.

2) Yes, the consensus plan is a much bigger and more important task on their plate right now

3) On the other hand, camera phones have not proven (with a few MINOR cases as exceptions) to have any real legitimate business use, and I have not heard of any real-life case of a cameraphone being used in any serious law enforcement situation.

Good debate point!!

But still, just because TJ said "some" things that history has proven false does not mean that "all" of his views are incorrect.

So, are you saying you disagree with the "freedom, security" statement??

Or did you just have a quote that you wnated to use?? ๐Ÿ˜•

Law Enforcement agencies are not allowed to utilize digital imaging (photography) in the course of gathering evidence. It still has to be on regular negative style film (usually 35mm). This is so the "chain of custody" in evidence handling is not broken and provides for a stronger case.

Walk into a courtroom with a digital image as evidence and it will be thrown out of court. The local SA had that happen to them twice and they advised that they wouldn't accept anything but 35mm pictures and accompanying negatives. (I have a good friend in the SA's...
