From my latest Boston Globe column, and the US Department of “Start Snitchin’”…
Swann made its name in the security business, with cameras designed to catch shoplifters and home invaders in the act.
But the company’s RemoteCam pinhole video camera, which will cost about $100 when it becomes available in a few days, is meant only for what I would classify as “offensive’’ purposes.
Journalists and police officers might find the RemoteCam handy for their undercover investigations. But so might perverts on the T, as well as private detectives spying on unfaithful spouses at North End restaurants.
