    The bundling of a Webcam is something that I've had a problem with when trying to take a laptop into some buildings. The security policies there forbid laptops with cameras, so all of the recent Apple laptops are barred from entry. I thought that it was stupid, but now maybe I understand why they're worried about laptops with cameras in the building!

    It's like iRobot with the cameras monitoring you whenever the robots want to, except that its the bureaucrats doing the wiretapping at Harriton High School.

    That's kinda of scary... Good thing my school doesn't care about our laptops, as long as we don't use the games and other crap at the school. Also, that kind of sucks about the webcam thing in buildings... Apple should give you can option not to have a webcam.
