    I just got a cheapy to use with yahoo a coupla weeks ago and even though it is not plugged in I'm getting a little wiered out with that little orb looking at me all the time.

    Mine doesn't, I have control of it - so it only captures what I want it to. If you feel creeped out by yours, maybe drop a cloth over it or a post it note to cover the lens.

    I can't put a cloth over it. I feel sort of powerless. It is exerting some sort of strange voodoo HAL like influence on me. I don't want to make it angry in case it locks me out of the house or something and takes over the satellite decoder and sends aliens to abduct me.

    When they gave out iSights at WWDC a couple of years ago there is a reason why I left mine in a box and handed it over our mac manager.

    No good would come from me having a webcam. On the other hand I now need a video feed for a project so....

    A few years ago I lived in the dorms with a roommate and we had a cheap webcam hooked up to my computer. I had it set to show video on my blog when I was around, but I left it on one day on accident when I was gone, and my roommate was in the room. My friend Joe apparently saw it was on while visiting my blog and started IMing my roommate from a new AIM address describing in detail what he was wearing and saying he was "watching" him. Freaked the hell out of my roommate until he figured out the camera was still on.

    So, uh, yeah. When I got my Intel iMac back in the day I constantly covered up the iSight. Just in case.

    I like the little Green light next to my iSight. With my webcam on my PC, I used to have no way of knowing when it was on. I like that the iSight tells me when it's on...
