Mehh my laptops all have the ribbon from the webcam & internal mic disconnected. I don't skype or facetime or any of the nonsense, if you want to talk to me call me on the phone or come to my house. With the ribbon being physically disconnected there is no hack or bypass.

They don't have to watch them all. They just need to know WHO to watch


Pennsy lvania school activates laptop cameras

It only takes one person to connect to your laptop....I would rather be safe than sorry.


I'm sure a lot of those camera's caught underage people undressing or nude. Where are all the charges for that? That type of thing really pisses me off. I'd have thrown the book at those people so hard they would have been looking at neil armstrongs footprints as they got up off the ground.

On a personal level, I'm not worried about it now because I am a nobody. However, i can see the potential for some frightening things.

Mass collection and organization of data could lead to authority figuares knowing everything about you. Your opinions, hobbies, owned items, bad habits, personality traits, ect..

A police background check could end up showing a personality profile. If one had said "f!ck the police" too many times on the internet, that person may end up having a violent and aggresive personality profile.

So instead of being asked politely for your insurance and registration next time you're pulled over, you may end up being held at gun point and temporarily detained.

Your private actions and personality could be seen by future employers that obtain the information through third party sellers. Into fetish feet porn? Well, you're not getting hired any time soon.

Yeah, had this happen to me once already, asshat hippie CFO fired me for having "scary machine gun pics" on a facebook account. Idjut didn't even bother to ask details, if he had he would have felt like a douche, was a M&P 15-22 .22 cal I purchased for my son so he could come shoot with the big boys and not have some crappy daisy or something. (In fairness though people have an absurd fear of the black rifles, note one of my rants about phobia!)

Well, I wouldn't consider a facebook page on the level as I described. Facebook pages are relativly easy to find and access. You can choose what you want a wide audience to see about you. Unless you choose to keep your facebook private and small.

Right now, empoloyeers aren't able to find your ATS or youtube comments. They can't see what websites or personality traits you exhibit. Unless you are sharing it all through your social media.

My point is that right now you can choose, for the most part, of what you want the public to see. At least, to my knowledge. The government (NSA) is a differnt story though. Who knows how much information they keep , store, and organize now.

If my laptop had a webcam I'd do it too!

It makes sense for him to do it especially. He's a billionaire that I'm sure is targeted and attacked on a regular basis.

The camera isn't so much the funny here as him putting tape over the jack.

It's a bit like trying to keep your car from being towed by hiding the key in the toilet tank.

The jack has nothing whatever to do with listening remotely, other than that it's an obvious visual symbol of the audio function. But that's not the microphone. At all. Taping over it doesn't stop the sound function from working. And this guy is supposedly technical. THAT'S THE JOKE.

In before: "He didn't want someone to hack into his cam". Well, that does not discount what it can be used for and very well can be used by the alphabet agencies.

And don't forget On star can be picked up even if you don't subscribe. Cut and short the antenna wire is the only way to stop it.

They know where you are and can listen in.



See, mine is a "2-party state" where it is a felony to monitor a person's conversation through remote means. Anyone "tuned in" is committing a crime unless I'm made aware.

So, really it comes down to the permissions you give to apps, and OS like Windows. The overwhelming number of apps demand access, for no good reason....and we give it to them because that's the world we live in. There should be advocacy against it on a consumer protection basis, but here we are.

My logical guess would be it would momentarily stop someone from walking by and inserting a bluetooth microphone to bug his laptop.

When you have a vast fortune I'm sure your mind starts to get a little crazy when it comes to protecting it or attempts to increase that wealth.

If you turn off the Internet and close your notebook, you will be able to see the real world and no one can spy on you through your computer in such a case.
