I was recently asked to provide a review for C-SLIDE Webcam Cover 1.0 . I have to say, I have been pretty paranoid about my webcam since my old laptop was hacked last month or so.
I was trying to keep the camera covered on the new laptop, but nothing was really working safely for opening and closing my laptop. And I didn't want to cover it permanently, as I do use the camera sometimes with my remote clients.
You see- simply disabling the camera is not enough when
someone else takes control of your PC remotely.
They just turn it back on!
Here is some info from the company:

I have my new webcam cover, and have been using it awhile and have been happy. I was a little concerned when I saw the size of it, but when you think about it- it has to be small enough to fit in your laptop when you close it.
(as me why I replaced my computer 2 laptops ago.. no- you should not close the laptop with headphones in it...DOH!)
I have had the cover slide around a bit as I take it from place to place, but it is pretty easy to move it back into place ( it slides so you can use it when you want.) I do abuse my computer quite a bit, so it is not surprising to me that it can move...
Overall, I have been pretty pleased with the cover. It makes me feel more confident in my surfing, and it is easy to use.
