Don't Let the Dogs Eat the Dog Food

Via Xeni Jardin, a great quote from a recent Wall Street Journal article on privacy concerns around phonecams:

Samsung Electronics, the world's third-largest maker of cell phones, has forbidden staff and visitors (effective July 14) from using camera-equipped phones in most of its semiconductor, flat-panel and electronics factories and research facilities, for fear that they could be used for industrial espionage. This from the company credited with developing the first camera handset. On its Web site it enthusiastically envisions "a time when camera phones will become not only a novel option and nice-to-have feature, but a mandatory function, a permanent requirement of the global mobile consumer." Except in its own factories, apparently.
Good catch there by the Journal.
