  Facebook Files for the Creepiest Patent Yet
 
  According to a story on IEN, Facebook has filed for patent that could quietly turn on your phone's microphone and record you.

Detailed by Mashable, the patent describes a scenario where an audio signal would be embedded in broadcasted content like a television ad. The frequency would be too low for a human ear to hear, but your smart phone would be able to detect it. Once it registers, it can enable your smart phone’s microphone and record the environment’s “ambient audio” – basically whatever speech is occurring at that time around the phone – which would then be sent back to Facebook for analysis.
