... and years ago people thought I was being overly paranoid when they noticed the smiley face sticker covering over my laptop's webcam. hmm

However, with me, if they did hack my camera they'd be permanently traumatized for life. big_smile

I still remember when webcams had a hardware shutter - like the original FireWire iSight or the iREZ KritterCam. I wonder who was behind their disappearance. Possibly the same folks who were behind the deliberate crippling of Dual_EC_DRNG.

I'm glad they nabbed that sucka.  He needs to do some serious time busting rocks.

Then there's people like me that nobody wants to peep at.  sad

I saw his lawyer do a song-and-dance about the kid being autistic. Well, he's aware enough to hack the cam, collect the video, and blackmail the girl. Lots of girls.

Let him become the Dream Date of Cell Block Ten.

I hope he does have mental issues, might be easier to fix than being an asshole.
