Submission + - Apple store artist raided by Secret Service->

An anonymous reader writes: Artist Kyle McDonald wanted to create something that captured people’s expressions as they stared at computers. So the 25-year-old artist installed a program on computers in two New York Apple Store locations that would automatically take a photo every minute of whoever was standing in front of the computer. McDonald then uploaded the photos to his Tumblr blog, “People Staring at Computers,” made a video with the photographs, and set up “an exhibition” at the Apple stores to show what he had found.

Within days, the Secret Service, which investigates computer crimes, had raided McDonald’s house, seizing his two laptops, two flash drives and iPod.
