Apple's hidden camera patents

I haven't even read 1984 but I know what a Telescreen is; a fictional-cum-real display that doesn't just show you images, but sees you, too. While this is clearly a useful device, not knowing whether you're being watched is a worrying possibility. And Apple Computer, self-appointed guardian of virtue, has not one or two but three patents designed to permit a display to watch the watcher.

Today, slashdot led me to FireGPG, a firefox extension that integrates GPG for all textareas, including having google support. I will be signing this message with my key (ID 78F34CB8). In the interest of having the key check out, I am going use the "unfiltered" format. I suspect messages which are filtered will be modified. You can also encrypt the contents of the text fields of course, but I will only sign my message.
