Or maybe you're a little paranoid that THEY may be watching your every move through the webcam on your MacBook?

I like working in a mixed-media environment with my computer, paper notebook, and mobile phone all at my desk.  Sometimes I'll jot down notes in my notebook with a pen, since it's easier to do, as I take a phone call, or when someone is speaking.  After I write down a bunch of notes, sometimes… Read More

Logitech HD Pro Webcam. Whoopity doo.  Honestly, I hate to sound negative but I just do not get what the big deal is.   I get HD.  I do.  Maybe not in the same obsession as anyone with a television or cellphone or video camera.  That group is a whole different breed.   I've seen… Read More

I enjoyed reviewing the Wi-Spi EX30 security camera from Brickhouse Security, it is missing one important feature - remote viewing from the internet. I think I may have found a better solution for those times when I would like to see what's going on in my home while I'm at work. It's the Avaak Vue… Read More

I've had the pleasure of getting to play with the new Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and I am impressed.  I haven't tried any other HD webcams but compared to my previous webcam, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is far superior.  To make this review simple, I compared the QuickCam Pro 9000 that I purchased in March 2009… Read More

I'm not a big fan of web cams and don't use them very often. I like the fact that I can roll out of bed with crazy hair and mismatched pajamas, chat with people and they can't see me. :) If I weren't so self-conscience, I might be tempted to check out what might be… Read More

Rovio Mobile Webcam Review

I have a dog at home and I have a mounted webcam to check in on him. This system works fairly well but occasionally he isn't on the couch in the living room and it is at times like that, that I've wished for a camera that I could pan and tilt. I was really excited when I heard about Rovio, I thought it would be the perfect solution! Forget pan and tilt, I could actually go find my dog and check in on him where ever he might be.

I'm a big fan of webcams. Once I figured out how to broadcast a webcam stream on a webpage, I started broadcasting from work so that my mom and friends could see me. One idea I had related to this was setting up a little home surveillance system with my two Logitech QuickCams and my eeePC 701's integrated webcam. I'm mostly just curious to see what my cats do all day while I'm at work. While setting up such a stream is pretty easy, it requires running a computer 24/7 and can be a little power and bandwidth hungry.
