35 Privacy-Preserving Innovations

Products Sure to Thwart Another Erin Andrews-Like Invasion

— July 23, 2009 — Celebs
The Internet is abuzz with news of Erin Andrews' privacy invasion--as they should be. There's a downside to our tabloid-obsessed, always-connected culture, and it's that personal privacy is at an all-time low, especially for individuals in the spotlight.

These innovations might not have helped preserve Erin Andrews' privacy, as some posit that the scandalous secret footage of the reporter was an inside job, but they may have. From instant privacy shrouds to photo-obscuring purses that thwart the paparazzi, there are plenty of creations that promise protection from an Erin Andrews-like invasion.
