    Invasion of privacy, But it would be interesting to know what all they caught on the iSight that students were doing.

    1. It is a constitutional right. It's called the 4th Amendment you idiot. This is illegal search and seizure. I'll even quote it for you since you obviously have no clue what your inalienable rights are.

    There were no oaths, there were no search warrants, there was nothing in the agreements signed when the laptop was issued to the student saying that the school system could activate the cameras and watch what students were doing. They did exactly that and violated both the signed agreement and the students 4th Amendment rights.

    The fact that people like you are out there and have no clue what your rights are is more scary than this whole story. I sure hope you don't go around telling anyone that they have no right to be secure in their privacy behind their own doors. Just because legislation like the Patriot Act violate every single right you have doesn't mean you don't have them. Either you didn't pay attention in school, or you haven't studied this subject yet.

    No it wouldn't. Would you like someone to know what is going on in your home any time they feel like looking? Didn't think so. What's more interesting is who the f*ck did this, approved it, and what amount of jail time they'll get.

    Here's the lawsuit if anyone wants to read it.

    Another thing, how you know if that person that is looking at them is not a pervert. If the FBI catch somebody with child porn he is a sexual offender but if he spy a child or pre teen and he can see him or her naked what's that?

    I was merely suggesting that if my school gave me a laptop that had a webcam, I would likely cover it with a sticker.

    There is too much questionable stuff going on in most schools... I would view them handing laptops out as a chance to spy on every student, not simply a 'nice' gesture.

    Im not lawyer, but I would assume the videos were probably saved somewhere and authorities will obtain them as part of the case. Right? If so, any inappropriate videos could really turn this case from invasion of privacy catching kids with drugs or alcohol to children changing or other stuff taking this to another level...

    wow, okay yeah invasion of privacy but seriously the only reason they are fighting this in court is because they got caught selling drugs, if you arent doing anything wrong who gives a shiza? I know the school was in the wrong too because they didnt have any warrants etc. but i think it should still be credible evidence to send the drugee kid to jail, just like the ACORN chick that admitted to killing her husband on tape, she shouldve been sentenced but the evidence wasnt "credible". its too easy for criminals to get away with stuff we need a tougher beefed up version of the patriot act, and like i said if you arent doing anything wrong, guess what??? you dont have to worry!

    At first, this one-to-one thing seemed amazing. Once I read this article, it became not so amazing..... (To simply state)

    this is totally crazy but i am curious tho. Usually now laptops have a small little LED light at the side of the webcam to indicate that the webcam is on right? Same goes to external webcam.

    Won't that be like a signal to the student that someone is accessing the laptop webcam?

    How does a school install software on a private phone... or are they giving students iPhones these days?

    I'm sure that there was some fine print in the agreement they signed regarding all this, the school would be stupid not to do so.

    Actually there is a public school in either Texas or Arkansas that used their excess budget money to provide their students with macbooks. They also switched to using digital copies of their text books and getting rid of the hard copies. So essentially the students always have their text books in way less space then 1 normal textbook would take. So yes the said school is making a very futuristic move and it isn't a school that is funded by a bunch of overly rich parents who think their kids are too good to be with the rest of the population. Just my 2 cents.

    how does turning on the camera tell them the location.

    i could see it now...."alright i can see a night stand, tv, some clothes, oh i know who that is that is jonny boys shirt, jonny boy must have the stolen ipod." i mean come on does it really take turning on the camera to active a GPS location or what cause i dot see how this helps "finding a stolen laptop"

    @ Rota. Yeah its against the 4th ammendment for sure, the kid will get off free and the school will pay the price. I was just tryin to say even if it was an unconstitutional intrusion of privacy the kid should still face the consequences of selling drugs, and the only reason you would want to defend the kids crime is if youre a criminal yourself,
    anyways on a lighter note
    @ bdcarp0 lol thats so true, nice illustration.

    I get what your saying, because most of the time when people complain about having cameras at intersections and stuff they shouldnt worry if they arent speeding or whatever. You're in a public place, you shouldnt expect any sort of privacy. Got it.

    But dude this is them looking at you, when you dont know about it, while your in your room. Imagine thats your daughter with the laptop and you find out some fat tech guy at the school has been randomly turning the cameras on and watching her change and stuff. I would be heated.

    Plus, if Im on http://www.htc.com/europe/product/hd2 I dont wanna be taped wacking off!
