    I put stickers or tape over my notebooks' cameras

    It creeped me out when my 2006 VAIO had a screensaver which displayed a picture of what it could see via the camera.

    Ever since, my notebooks have had stickers or tape over their cameras. A malicious intruder might capture images from the camera and use them.

    I read 1984 in the previous decade and saw the movie later when it came out. Video cameras pointed at me give me the willies, especially when I don't know who'll be seeing the images.

    Maybe I'll go get a copy of a Eurythmics album with 'Sexcrime' on it. I remember that a whole bunch of people objected to that song in the mistaken belief that it glorified crimes against women.
