I am going to try to explain it to you, but this will be my only attempt so please read this
The difference between using technology and pitch framing is that one is an art that comes from a player's ability to make pitches better. The other teams and the umpires have knowledge of what pitch framing is and how it happens. Umpires can become aware of who is a great "pitch framer" and adjust accordingly. Stats are used to show who the best and worst pitch framers are. It is out there for public consumption. The key here is there very up front knowledge of this practice and the other team and umpires are aware of it. It happens on the field and players doing the framing are getting no help from anyone.
With this scam the Astros ran the entire team was complicit in this by keeping it a secret. This was a system that employed cameras which relayed real time video to someone who then relayed messages to a player via a wired a device taped inside his uniform. The player was given real time information (something that could never be accomplished through hand signals) about what pitch was coming. As Curt Schilling explained the other day, this system would have killed him because if everyone knew his two seamer was coming they wouldn't have swung. Now they are geared up for tow pitches. To get this in place there were layers of duplicity to this and the other team's pitcher had no way of defending himself against it because they did this without the other team's knowledge. Had the Astros informed the other teams of this there isn't an organization that wouldn't have blown the whistle on them. This was a highly elaborate scam which operated on many levels and if it were ever discovered during a game players would have been ejected, probably the game protested, and lord knows what else.
The fact that you wonder why it's viewed so differently from pitch framing only illustrates the lack of depth and understanding this argument you presented has. It assumes ignorance. It attempts to use generalizations to equate two different things. It shows the details I and others have presented go over your head for some strange reason. Either you understand it or you don't. That is on you, my friend. I cannot break it down in more elementary terms for you.
The fact that this needs to be explained to anybody is ....well.....mind boggling.
