How about spying? Source: School used student laptop webcams to spy on them at school and home Boing Boing I really hope this is fake, or this is just so mind-bogglingly retarded I can barely comprehend it. I don't see how this can end any way but badly for that school district. I saw another link (can't find it now but I'll try to and post it later) where the school district said that they only use the feature to help recover stolen or lost laptops, but that doesn't really explain why they were punishing the aforementioned kid for something he did in his own home. Also, if mods think this is better suited elsewhere, or want to move it for serious discussion or something like that, go for it.
