Man's life saved by camera phone

Some corporations ban camera phones for security purposes (corporate espionage!), but Matthew Stevens is alive because of the tiny camera embedded in his mobile phone. Mr. Stevens was bitten by a Brazilian Wandering Spider, which if not treated correctly can be fatal. Despite the shock of being bitten, Stevens snapped a photo of the spider with his mobile phone. Zookeepers were able to identify the creature and give his doctors information about the antidote.
