Doesnt really surprise me, why would the students trust that sort of thing anyway?

When I was in High School, I never touched a computer without hitting a proxy-site first...

Somewhere in Philadelphia, one school administrator has just smacked another school administrator upside the head. "Damnit, Jenkins! I told you we should just have gone with chastity belts!"

Words fail me... I'm literally crying right now.

And then you can get the viewers for watching child porn if the student in question is below the age of consent.

I just didn't visit porn sites on school property. Played Quake on it, though. That was fun.

Because the webcam can capture anything happening in the room where the laptop is, district personnel could illicitly observe plenty more than a student's online activity, the lawsuit alleges.

I'm assuming the webcams were integrated into the laptops, so it would be pointing away from the screen. How would they be able to use the webcam itself to monitor the online activity in the first place?

So was the computer monitoring keystrokes, and online usage? Were the webcams controlled remotely? So bizarre. I can't imagine how something like this would even pass the fantasy stage.


My school issued laptop does monitor key strokes... thankfully, it does not have a webcam.

I would not accept a laptop from my school in the first place.
Well... I don't suppose there's a choice. I would just search "puppies" everyday to seem good.

Those who can, do.
Those who can't, teach.
Those who are so mind-bendingly stupid that their idiocy actually has MASS.... they make school administrators.

All matter has gravity. All matter has mass. Therefore their idiocy has a gravitational pull equal to that of the Earth, as idiots are also very dense.

Yeah, but how would they convince themselves that he's not allowed to do that? I think he probably smoked pot or something.
