Putting an end to those despicable whistleblowers might seem nigh on impossible in the age of Wikileaks, but you can bet your bubby that stopping would-be Daniel Ellsbergs is something that companies are taking very, very seriously. Canon has just announced that copiers running version 5 of its Uniflow networking platform can use their OCR capabilities to keep an eye out for certain keywords (say, "planned robot invasion" or "time machine") and prevent the documents they appear in from being copied altogether. Wild, huh? Just so long as the machine isn't also saving the info to use against you at a later time.
