You have a laptop, I guess. If you have a desktop, that isn't the case.

I agree. I can't imagine anyone is surprised by this. People think it was supposed to be stopped years ago?! Really? What rock were they hiding under. This got released into the wild, and is now being exposed to the uninformed masses. So if the CIA knows all the hacking secrets, they know how to prevent the hacking / spying they are doing, but will they? I don't know that this leaves us much more exposed than we were to begin with, it's just that more people know about it.

Mine have pink stickies too! The only problem is that I was on a meeting call, and everyone's face showed up but mine, which was a pink square. It took me about a minute to realize it was my sticky over the camera. Tough explaining to that group of liberal writers why I had my computer camera covered. :blush:

Well, at least you know it works. I just checked mine and this is what I see for 'facetime' (which we use with our son all the time ... I'll have to remember to take off the stickie!):

Unfortunately, I just take this stuff in-stride now.

In another 10 or 15 years we'll be in line to have the rfid chip put in. They'll have to wheel me into the line as I'll probably be in a wheelchair and wearing diapers by then, and won't care.
