I'm not for a camera either but my reason is more on the practical side. I think it's an unneccessary add on that takes up space, resources and battery life. A camera can easily be added with solutions that range from linking a cell phone to selling a tiny BT cam that can wirelessly connect. The reality is that cameras are part if our lives but there is a sure way to maintain your privacy, turn the damn thing off! What happened to just turning stuff off? Or closing the laptop? You close the curtains in your bedroom don't you? Common sense people, just use common sense.
If that happened to one of my kids I would be taking action against the school and all parties involved...by action I mean legal and undoubtedly physical
That would pi$$ me off to no end.
Who cares that I'm being watched! I grew up with the notion I've been taught that God and Angels are watching over me all the time!
Just turn your devices off...
You'll save power by the same action.
Not white, not black just passionate shades of grey...

This post is ridiculous. Take off the tinfoil hats people! I guess you don't want to have a camera on your laptop either. Not to mention the fact that the average city dweller is on camera upwards of 60 times per day anyways.
The iPad should have a camera. It is the perfect device for video chatting, and not putting one in was a major mistake. And it wasn't to reduce cost, because apple already has a sweet 50 percent markup on these things. A five dollar camera wouldn't have affected their profit significantly.
Well no I don't want a camera on my laptop. I don't feel the need to take pictures with a device the size of the ipad or a laptop. My iphone however is the perfect size for that.
I can see how some people would like a webcam on the ipad and they are included on mac laptops, but I don't video chat so I don't have a need for one.
