Why fit in when you were born to stand out?


The other day I was reading this neat little story about a man who had his computer stolen from him *not the neat part*, but he had put an app on it that allowed him to access his camera from other devices. He used this to take photos of the man who had taken his laptop and helped to lead the police to the thief.

After reading this story most people would feel a sense of congratulations toward the young man for being prepared. Or they might even go out and buy this app so that they too can be prepared.

Is this how I react?
Do you know me at all???

Of course the more reasonable thing would have been to feel happiness for the guy and maybe get the app as well. But me, what do I do - I find painter's tape and cover the camera on every device that has an internet connection + camera.

My Computer - check.
Hubby's Computer - check.
My IPhone - check.
Hubby's IPhone - check.
IPad - check.
And just for good measure:
Kinect - check.

Who does this?!
Only the purely paranoid would be afraid of someone peeping in on them and thus cover up all the camera's in the house. Code is paranoid. And the sad thing is, I really don't have anything to hide! So why am I afraid of peeping toms? (Warning - slightly TMI) Honestly, because I have two small kids, sometimes the only place that I can get a little "me/quiet" time is on the toilet. So I bring my happy little laptop to the potty with me, and I'm slightly terrified of the idea that someone would get a picture of me while I'm in the loo.
Surely there's a better way to go about things.

Still looking for staff. Especially you - YES YOU!

Also I finally got around to updating our wallpapers page. It's still a work in progress, but at least it's up.

  1. OMGI so agree with your reaction about this story, it's scary to think that someone could access all the cameras you could have at home. I'm using my computer (who has a camera integrated) in my room or mostly everywhere (lol in the loo too !!) and I really hope that nobody can see everything that this camera can see !!

    Do you imagine how much information or shameful moments people couold see. That's damn scary !! And I'm thinking about this tape thing now ;)

    Anywy, thanks again for the hard work as usual.

  2. I understand the need for privacy. That is why I do have a Facebook page and my cell phone is not "smart." I like the old-fashioned "anonymous" aspect of the internet. Ah well..

    Thank you for the releases! 5 chapters at once! How lucky!

  3. OOPS!
    "That is why I do have a Facebook page"

    ah, that doesn't make sense...should have been "do NOT have a Facebook page"

  4. Yes I agree with you that it is creepy to think that we may be peeped by unknown people out there through our own little gadgets! I wonder what our lives will be in the future consider that we are getting more and more online.

    And thanks a bunch for the release ^^.

  5. lol at potty private time :D Actually, your reaction is much like my own. If I had a device that was connected to home devices and it was stolen, the first thing I'd do would be to disable the connection. I'd be crazy paranoid about someone being able to intrude on my privacy (not that we have much of that anymore since the invention of FB), and I wouldn't want any risk of any stranger being able to access my private or home life.

    Thanks again for the releases and your staff's hard work!
