    I also use blue "painter's tape" for the same reason - no worry about residue - but I got the idea a few years ago from a colleague who uses Bandaids - he's the guy that first made me aware of potential snooping :)

    Electrical tape works well if it's the 3M kind though

    Yep. "Secure" or not, it will ultimately be a direct pipeline to NSA, the FBI, and any other interested "official" party.
    Nope. Not in *my* house. No way.

    Although not
    it's just like the 1984 Telescreen...

    "The character O'Brien claims that he, as a member of the Inner Party, can turn off his telescreen (although etiquette dictates only for half an hour at a time). While the programmes could no longer be seen or heard, the screen still functioned as a surveillance device, as after Winston is taken into the Ministry of Love, the audio of his meeting with O'Brien with the telescreen "off" is played back to Winston. . . . the fact that their microphones are incredibly sensitive, and they are said to pick up a heartbeat. As Winston describes, "... even a back can be revealing ..."[1]"
