Do you keep a band-aid or some kind of tape over the camera on your laptop? I do, soon I’ll be wearing a colander on my head.

    No, I don't. I understand how in the age of "surveillance capitalism" someone might be compelled to do that, but I've never cared enough to do it. It looks ugly.

    I'm not beautiful. I just have very low standards for what constitutes a good  hair day.

      I know, right? Who needs all that pesky technology anyway?  It’ll just ruin things for us.

    You should be charging them for that stuff. Don’t give it away for free.

    I have black electrical tape over the camera on my laptop and my phone. I don't take pictures of anything and I don't want anything taking pictures of me.

    I'm cute about it and hubby knows it. He is the one the cuts the small piece and places it neatly over the camera. It's small and precise. Did you know that Alexa and Sirius listens and records you too? I have neither of those and never will.

    I was gifted one of those amazon speaking things but I even never used it. I also have Siri disabled. I have noticed though that I’ve had convos about things and then next day i get ads for them. It’s nothing I’ve looked up or typed on my phone, creepy stuff.
