Take a picture with no sound : future laws in the USA

Hello,

we've been talking about it for such a long time. On devices that can take pictures (all devices that have a trackball or a touchscreen), there is a sound whenever you take a picture. That is not a bug, it is by design by RIM.

There is the tweak that consists on making a phone call, and taking the picture during the call.

There are applications that allow you to remove that sound, like BerryAnnoying

And soon there will be a law that will forbid manufacturers to sell devices that can allow taking pictures without sound.

absouuuulouuutely naught, bumblepie !
It's just that I have a Chandler syndrom.
when I take a picture of myself, if there is a funny noise, my face distorts.

Re: Take a picture with no sound : future laws in the USA

Because I take my phone to the deer stand and I want to take pictures without scaring away the deer.  Not all of us are perverts.  Also, taking pictures in places such as court houses, librarys, or any other quiet building would not be disrespectful.
