Why would Apple want to include a feature that disabled iPhone owners from taking pictures at a concert? Even assuming the concert organizers would be willing to pay for it, that sum would be a fraction of what Apple would lose in sales from people who find out that they're blocked from taking pictures at the concert while their Samsung owning friends aren't, and decide their next phone will be a Samsung.

Honestly, some people go to such lengths to hate on Apple will moronic schemes that would never work in the real world. It is almost as if they're just wishing Apple will do something that dumb so their hopes that Apple crumbles will become real. Nevermind that Google is far from doing no evil, and giving them an effective monopoly on the cellphone market is not something we want, considering how they're treating their effective monopoly with Youtube lately.
