My fiance were sitting around one day thinking about this...
Why are there cameras and microphone insets popping up on everything? First, we've got cameras on our phones, next is the built-in cameras and
microphones on your laptop, and now this??
Nintendo DS adds camera
They say it's to 'get you more into the game'... But I think that there's something behind all of this. How are all of these cameras and
microphones be accessed? Is it only from your own personal gadget, or can these technologies be accessed from other outside sources?

Although many people think, "Well, what would they want to watch you just browsing the web and playing video games."
Well, if they're watching you through a web cam, surely they can access what you're looking at online, as well. If your laptop is left open, anyone
hacked on to your database can capture images of your house, apartment, family, guests, etc.
Also, can't LCD screens be used as a 2-way communicator? Something to do with the tubes involved and wiring, etc.
It's as if someone wants everything to be recorded. I mean, look at all these video blogs, YouTube, and all that's in between. All our lives are
being recorded daily, whether you're driving on the street, or walking through a store, someone is watching. We're being conditioned into thinking
that everything should be recorded for 'sentimental' reasons, but with a collective database of everyone's photographs and videos ever recorded,
there would be a substantial amount of useful information, when put in the right hands.
I'm trying to find some more links that I've come across about this topic, but right now, I'm drawing a blank.
