They have also become a source of security and privacy issues, as some built-in webcams can be remotely activated by spyware.
The most popular use of webcams is the establishment of video links, permitting computers to act as videophones or videoconference stations.
Some of them, for example, those used as online traffic cameras, are expensive, rugged professional video cameras.The final image captured by the camera can still be viewed at its homepage. Quick Cam was originally the design of Jon Garber, who wanted to call it the 'Mac-camera', but was vetoed by Connectix's marketing department which saw the possibility of it one day becoming a cross-platform product.The first known commercial webcam, the Quick Cam, entered the marketplace in 1994, created by the U. computer hardware and software company Connectix, which later sold its product line to another U. It was to become Connectix's first Microsoft Windows product 14 months later when Quick Cam for Windows was launched in October 1995.Nearly everyone in our group bought can-ams, and i dont think anyone can manage even a 1000 miles without some limp mode malfunction occuring!I agree, I would be fine with either Honda or yami at #1 but I have never really liked the canned hams. I have looked at them a few times now....you know nothing good can come from that!
