Quote from: sheldar on February 22, 2010, 10:18:22 AMJust read about this. Pretty much an invasion of privacy. That's why my wifi is encrypted and feel a bit nervous whenever I am on an unencrypted wifi.Is there a way to keep files on the hard drive private when using unencrypted wifi?
Quote from: HawkeyeMeds on February 22, 2010, 11:24:22 AMThis sounds soooo wrong. My first thought us what if you've got your laptop on and getting changed and they take pics. I mean how sick is that?
Quote from: Jen on February 22, 2010, 11:20:06 AMHow irresponsible of the school. They couldn't see this lawsuit coming??? Morons. BTW, I've heard of people locating stolen Macbooks by turning on their computers remotely through their Apple web accounts. The owner of one such Macbook was able take a photo of the jerk who stole their computer and the police used it to track the culprit down. For every upside though, there seems to be a down side...which really stinks.
Quote from: Just X on February 22, 2010, 11:39:39 AMI can't think of any reason for a kid to be getting dressed in the front of a webcam. My own child knows not to change in front of open windows or the webcams in the house.Hell, my computer illerate father in law knows that people can hack your webcam.This generation grew up on the tech. They should know better. Mant of us have also heard about the remote activation of mac cams.I'm hoping that the school informed the parents of monitoring before they issues them. I would hate to see it blow up in their faces.The good part is that once the lawsuits are over, the school probably won't have the laptops and if they lose will be hard pressed to afford text books.It's my hope that teachers concerned that the student might have been taking drugs won't blow up and force a great tool to be removed.
