FBI Director James Comey Tapes Over His Laptop Camera

It’s a stunning admission if you think about it. Even the head of the FBI doesn’t feel safe from intrusion by the NSA or other hackers. It makes you think about what J.Edgar Hoover’s webcam would have shown…

We’re all at a point where we need to take extra precautions if we’re to maintain our privacy. Tape on you laptop camera or your phone camera is a pretty good idea. An extreme one maybe, but one we need in an age of extreme intrusiveness.
