The ads round here do indeed look pretty well behaved (for ads :cool:),  but I do not trust ads (and things like the facebook "icon")  on principle, but I admit  that I'm a bit of an extremist here as I come from a work culture where were all professional paranoids, we even leave phones out of the door during confidential meetings,.

The same paranoia is necessary in my field, I tape over my webcams when not in use.

Including the "one pixel webcam" in the lower left hand corner of your screen?

If you saw how easy they were to co-op, you might do the same. It's not a matter of whether they are able to hack the camera, it's a matter of whether someone decides to pick your machine.

Tempest is fine, but will it survive offensive action by the feline you posted ?

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
