thats not the point, and its not the same thing at all. my vision is not via my phone, and discretion of conversation on a telephone is usually adheared to in public and to an extent privatley within ear shot of others, If you dont know whos recording you externally to your own communication device then you cant trust your own words = no privacy.
Such an indicator doesn't really solve anything, same with the cell phone cameras being legally required to have a shutter sound. There are numerous camera apps or ROMs that just disable the sound anyway.
its sad that so many younger folk on here accept the fate of new technology without question. One day it will ruin / restrict their own adult life and their childrens even more so if its is not regulated sensibly. its even sader that once those rights are gone they wont come back. If you opt out of a phone, tablet, online accounts now you can at least keep your self quite private, with public upload you are recorded and analyzed outside of the computer you sit in front of in the real world. Of course companies and governments do this now, it does sit uneasy but its usually lost in the blur, only required for playback at the scene of a crime for example..
with public surveillance its capturing your life in realtime without your consent to be monitored by non responsible or regulated online groups ... does anyone actually welcome that ?
i supose its an issue of trust ? do you trust a busy government organization to keep that video safe VS a 13 year old uploading for the 'lulz' where is the enforcement then? a shared video could ruin court cases, cause mob violence and retaliation before facts have been established etc.. this already happened with phones but its just so much easier when video becomes your focus and not Txt on facebook chats
