+ - Got a Criminal Record? See You on Apple Maps!

Submitted by theodp
theodp (442580) writes "With its 295 pages of drawings, Apple's pending patent application for a System and Method for Anonymous Location Based Services covers a lot of ground, including a plan to map the homes of those with criminal records and make the info available to via a GPS-based service. From the application "A policeman may activate a mobile police automobile device (i.e. RDPS) in a police car for automatic delivery of a person's criminal record as the policeman drives by the location of a person's house. The police establishment configures criminal record content, or pointers thereto, along with the location of the residence that is believed to harbor the person with a record. As the policeman drives by locations with addresses of known offenders, the RDPS displays applicable criminal data.' So, can we expect to see this feature on Apple Maps someday?"
