    That is kind of creepy, but it's not actually sending the image anywhere, it's just rendering on your local computer through QuickTime.

    Sure...but even so...it's still creepy. And how hard would it be to redirect the output of that to some kind system that could stream it elsewhere? (I actually don't know, but I don't think it is impossible).

    And I noticed the picture before I noticed the green light on the cam.

    Yeah, that is pretty creepy. Imagine what would happen if some guy is in his house, naked, and surfing the internet... and this came up and streamed it to the public. Not sure whether to laugh or shudder.

    Off topic, but apparently posting pictures like that on ebay is actually a fetish...and done on purpose to see if anyone notices.
