    a little well cut piece of black electric tape should do the trick.

    You actually mean to tell me that someone around you is going to know that the green light on means you're in a video chat? I'm lucky if I bump into someone at work who even knows what OS X is.

    Good point. Plus, wouldn't you want to know if somehow someone remotely turned the thing on and was watching you? :)

    Yes, that is exactly what he is saying. Unless you are dumb enough to install some sort of malware/trojan that allows access to your camera than the likelihood of this happening is one in a trillion. If you have the firewall turned on, you have a better chance of your laptops battery exploding and dying in the flames.
