    Me: "No, I think that is a Llama."
    Her: "Oh, I thought it was a Llama."
    Some mics can be very good at capturing something if the source is close to the mic and the background noise is further away

    The angle of the sounds, relative to the mic, can also have an effect

    Public servants who work for any level of government and who are paid for their work via tax money work for the people. The tax payers are the customer, you are the provider/supplier.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Ring ring.
    "Hello?"
    "Hi, I'm the NSA aide assigned to assist you. Your daughter was in fact petting a Llama, what you were looking at was actually an Alpaca. Great recording, by the way!"
    "Thanks!"

    It's all in the quality of the hardware, of course. I skype regularly with other people, and the difference in mic and camera technology is phenomenal. I can't hear them if they go off camera, whereas they can hear me clearly no matter where I am in the room. As long as the hardware in your smart phone is good enough then sky's the limit, really.

    I think they have apps like smart phones - so he could've been reading the news. People generally don't get told to put a newspaper away.

    The customer was a douche, but I think the business owner is fighting an unwinnable battle. You won't even know someone is using a smart device in the near future so how can this be enforced?

    That was actually my point. Right or wrong the owner is farting into a hurricane.

    The owner is not denying people with smart devices he's denying a person with a specific smart device - Google glasses. If the owner wants to fart in the wind, he should be allowed to and either he prospers or does not given that decision. The market decides. Hell, he could market and advertise his establishment as a "device free zone" to distinguish it from his competitors where people can go and actually talk to each other instead of stare and tap on their smart phones.

    Indeed. It's a creepy future ahead of us, but the ability to record everything that happens to us is pretty much going to be a necessity. I can't think of any career where you wouldn't be nigh obligated to have that ability. It's a race to the botom for privacy, but I don't see how this can be regulated.
