Black electricians tape on my Lenovo laptop just to be 100% safe. The Lenovo system update utility was known to be a major security risk.

I would if I were him, but I'm not, so I don't.

Looks like he also has taped over his all of his ports...

Tape over the ports is a bit odd, a Faraday Cage would be a better solution for those.

How about anything and anyone in the room?

Laptops aren't the only devices with a camera.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

The knucklehead knows he cannot trust what he created. Neither do I.

While my distrust of FB may or may not be warranted, I'll grant that Zuck didn't create cameras in laptops, displays, webcams, or the hacks it the hardware, nor the concept of using them to spy on owners.

Now if the FB app contains an exploit allowing surveillance, then I'll stand corrected.
