Op-Ed Letter Printed in NY Times Published: December 19, 2003 To the Editor:
In an attempt to sell more minutes, wireless phone providers ignored the privacy implications of a portable, covert digital camera embedded in a cellphone (“Calling ‘Candid Camera,’ ” editorial, Dec. 12).
The irony: wireless companies, instead of selling more minutes, are facing a move to ban cellphone cameras in more and more places. Ignoring consumer privacy really does have a bottom-line effect.
