Laptop Webcams

After reading the news about webcams on laptops being hacked and taking pictures for hackers, I feel my paranoia is justified.

Every laptop I’ve ever owned has had the camera disabled and then a piece of tape stuck over it. Even if it never got hacked, the idea of someone watching me creeped me out.

What happened to the physical covers older webcams used to have? You can’t really trust the OS to make sure it stays off (nor can you trust the little light).
