Tape for the camera
If you have someone whom you are not fond of, but need to give them a gift, you can give them a piece of tape to cover the camera on computers and other devices. While any piece of tape will do, you can buy tape made specifically for that purpose to make it look like a real gift. This is a serious problem that should be addressed.
As IT professionals, we are asked to serve our friends and families whenever they have a problem. I personally don’t mind doing it, and most of the other professionals I know don’t mind doing it either. However, let’s exercise some forethought and help our friends and family in advance. It also helps make our holiday shopping much simpler.
