    YES.

    w1z4rd we know what you have been doing, we know why you are here. Someone is always watching.

    It is interesting. I have a dell I think... oh no... they're here.....


    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy

    Haha sorry I couldn't help myself.

    I'm not much of a computer tech so I can't say whether or not this is real or should be worried about. If this was on everyone's computer what would be the point (of spying)? Maybe the guy who made that notice is just paranoid. Or maybe not...

    Wow. Had my Dell laptop not been stolen, I would be checking right now. My replacement laptop (thanks to insurance) is an Acer Ferrari. I wonder if I can find one there, too.

    I wonder if you took a look inside your tv would you find a device that shows them watching us while we are watching them!

    Meanwhile sorry to burst the bubble

    "The Dell keylogger conspiracy hoax
    Posted Jun 16th 2005 8:08PM by Ryan Block
    Filed under: Laptops


    Just in case you've seen that web page floating around implicating Dell in some wacked out government conspiracy by suggesting they fit a 4mb keylogger between the keyboard end of some guy's 600m and the Ethernet adapter, we'd like to point out a few key bits, having been inside a Dell laptop or forty.

    Dell laptop keyboards plug directly into the motherboard with a ribbon cable

    He was inside to replace a broken PCMCIA slot riser on the motherboard? Uh, that's a guaranteed next-day mobo replacement on a "almost brand new Dell 600m"—not that you could, but why bother even if you knew how and had spare laptop motherboard parts?

    We've never seen a zip-tied circuit board in professionally assembled machine

    That device is far too massive to fit under the mobo of a Dell laptop

    Awful blurry picture of where it's at in the machine!

    Sorry dude, but we're calling major, major BS on this. Anyone care to prove us wrong and open up a huge can of civil rights violations?

    Update: Looks like the hoaxster pulled the images from here. [Thanks, scim]"
