That's why all over the years I am dealing with electronic devices, the mic and cam USB cables are always unplugged.

I plug them in if I need to, do my job, plug them out again until next time.

The only device I can't do that, is my smartphone....and that's bugging me

Does not surprise me at all.

Physically un-plug or disconnect microphone.

No, they're bugging you.

Seriously, it's pathetic and creepy that it's come to that.
I've been on the internet since 56K dial-up. 1990. It amazes me to think of the evolution of the net since then.
edit: whoops - 1995, not 1990

That is why I slip a subtle "Fuck you NSA" in every once in a while......

I unloaded Google Chrome off of my machines years ago too.

That sucks..... Hmm, I think I might just take Google Chrome off my PC, but then I don't talk much at my desk, except Skype with customers - which I really don't care if anybody (or anything!!) is listening.

I once heard a great way to deal with sales calls is to put a porn film on the TV loudly and leave them hanging on the line...Maybe Chrome's operators might enjoy that too.

Euro RC51 SP2: HRC WSB Ti Hi-Level, T1 Airbox & Snorkel, PCIII, Dymag CA5 Carbon Wheels, Ti64 Spindles (F, R & Swing Arm), Mori Link, Maxton GP7 Shock & Ohlins 832 Forks, Brembo GP Calipers & SBK narrow track (F), Braketech Disc (R), Brembo billet Underslung x 2 Brembo RCS, Tyga Triple, 7075 Stem, Probolt Titanium all over, Babyface rearsets, MR Complete Carbon Lineup, Custom Undertail & CBR 1000 LED, Watsen LED Indicators, Harris Brace, Giles clip-ons, Corbin seat, etc. 2013 BOTY.

I used to live in an all brick house....you know those annoying telemarketers, the ones selling vinyl siding....I'd say, come on out and give me an estimate.

Only one had the balls to come to the door. He wanted to change my eaves and over hangs from wood to the plastic shit.

He didn't stay long
