I was just thinking about George Orwell's book 1984 in which the television sets were used to keep tabs on the citizens. It occurred to me that computers are being used as television, communication, work, effectively staying on constantly and having the same function as the television sets in Orwell's novel. I don't think that there is a conspiracy here; but, the pieces are in place.

I cover my web cam when I am not using it. Personally, I like the video chat features on a computer; but, I want to remain in control of that feature.
Interesting. I wonder what the point of spying through a web cam would be?
Thanks. I did not realize external cams had better quality. I don't think Big Brother is here; but. I do find it interesting when a technology that was fantasy moves into the realm of possibility.
