    Am I Paranoid...

    ... inasmuch as I keep a small piece of Scotch tape over my laptop's Cammie?

    Sometimes, Cortana seems to perk up especially when certain media is playin' on the TV. Could it mistaken all the moan & groan for distress and call 911? Tape the mic too?

    Yes, you're paranoid. Now just relax, turn your head, and cough. The black helicopters will stop flying over soon.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    You are not paranoid at all. They really are out to get you.

    You may be paranoid, but that doesn't mean it ain't true.

    If you were paranoid then you'd use electrical tape. You could try disabling both the camera and microphone in device manager.

    Unlike Macs, most Dell,HP and many other windows based machines have the led indicator inline with the power supply to the camera, so you know when it is one and the led cannot be disabled. Macs on the other hand, there is code that an enable the camera without the led coming on...

    This is a general statement, and not ever laptop does this, but most so.

    You are definitely paranoid! They are not spying on YOU, they are spying on everyone!
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    What is wrong with you? Scotch tape is clear, I use electrical tape.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I tested the view through Scotch and it's blurry enuff to obscure detail yet clear enuff if I wanna go voyeur...

    Stories abound on the web of hacks of web devices with little true or updated security (nanny cams are disturbing). Course, these stories might be fabricated by people trying to sell me true or updated security!!! Calgon, take me away!
