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!"

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.

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.
