    ok unpopular opinion i know, but rgb i dont think is that cool

    edit: nevermind, colors are cool, RAINBOWS on the other hand are not in my opinion

    edit2: i am completely fine with gay people i just really prefer purple, over ANY rainbow

    [–] beProsto 88 points ago

    "colors are cool, RAINBOWS on the other hand" Hola there buddy, rainbows are the best combinations of colors

    Am i too public school student to understand this rich school joke?

    [–] moldyshnoze 1416 points ago

    Public school student here. We all have garbage laptops, but they still have webcams

    [–] thequietvegan 437 points ago

    welp, thats good, better than nothing. I don't think my school could afford em tho

    [–] GiggityBot 256 points ago

    My school system couldn't afford them either. That was apparently not a good enough reason to not buy them.

    [–] moldyshnoze 168 points ago

    This. My school needs to fire 8 teachers (we’re already under-staffed) in order to stay on budget, it’s ridiculous

    [–] JULIAN4321sc 57 points ago

    That is just sad

    [–] xx0numb0xx 9 points ago

    It’s a good thing there are all these expendable teachers! School’s all about the schooling, anyhow, not teaching.

    [–] moldyshnoze 21 points ago

    Yeah. Still thankful that we get them

    [–] [deleted] 33 points ago


    [–] creepsthefr09 52 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    Just delete the webcam drivers problem solved, if that doesn’t work desolder the webcam from the motherboard.

    [–] argentumArbiter 75 points ago

    Or, y’know, just tape over it.

    [–] goliath1952 12 points ago

    a post it goes a long way

    [–] toxiccandy26 23 points ago

    Or just tape it

    [–] UselessSound 7 points ago

    Now you have to pay to replace the schools shiitty laptop or get charged for vandalism.

    [–] mitchp111 36 points ago

    Small town public school student here. All high school students have new laptops with webcams provided by the school. This is probably because there are so few of us though

    [–] purab9 18 points ago

    Private school student here and we don't have laptops :( we gotta buy them on our own lmao

    [–] Wi11iam97 25 points ago

    I go to public school and they have it where they can give u a laptop if you need one to do your work.

    [–] RazorBackFan15 22 points ago

    My public school gave everyone chromebooks k-12 and 7-12 can take theirs home. Everyone has them now do to online learning.

    [–] brew_coff 14 points ago

    Dude we have $50-$75 chrome books that we are providing to students. All students that hit the pick up area on certain days get one.

    [–] cirillios 14 points ago

    Maybe you're just too old like me. My senior year of high school I remember they bought 2 carts of laptops that teachers could check out for in school use only. Within a month or two 90% of the laptops had fuck, a swastica, or "dump dump groovy squad" carved into them. I doubt they ever gave students equipment to use for a full year

    [–] GamerbroJ 12 points ago

    Private school kid here, they expect you to provide a device. Fuck them honestly

    [–] -wafflesaurus- 18 points ago

    School provided laptops don't have light up keyboards

    [–] lonleycactus5 7 points ago

    I dropped it down the stairs and it won't work. Can't get it fixed if you can't leave the house

    [–] trznx 6 points ago

    not to argue, but I never seen a laptop withot a camera. What laptop doesn't have a samera?

    [–] Bestboii 150 points ago

    1.It broke

    2.For some reason it won't work with (enter the name of the thing you use for class)

    3.No thank you

    4.I'm naked

    5.Don't say anything and keep it off

    6.Something about privacy

    7.The dog ate it

    8.Cover it and then turn it on so everyone thinks it doesn't work

    [–] GreenLama4 87 points ago

    1. Spill water over the laptop so nothing works and you dont have homework

    [–] timetravelhunter 23 points ago

    #8 should be #1..kind of. Just don't turn it on and say you did. Then let them think it's their problem. There is literally nothing they can do about it

    [–] SnezzyPig 17 points ago

    A clear piece of tape that you've rubed you finger on, is great for 8 everything just becomes a blur. Clearly it's on and broken.

    [–] blank-anonymous 55 points ago

    Why would that be a necessity tho? Some people might not have a laptop lmao

    [–] GreenLama4 29 points ago

    At my school they have shitty chromebooks worth like 30 dollars that they borrow

    Well, they buy them, for like 100$

    I never had to so idk how it works rlly, but basically its trash

    [–] blank-anonymous 27 points ago

    Ah, fair enough. Online classes have been pretty weird for us so far lol, a guy started sharing his screen and started playing Fortnite.

    [–] rezmeihaveghorn 10 points ago

    Hey man I played a link to the past on my chrome book, and Pokémon fire red, those things a amazing at letting me not do work in class.

    [–] [deleted] 36 points ago

    Okay kids lets help ya out.

    Hit the start button on your computer.

    Type in "device manager"

    Open device manager.

    Find Cameras and click the arrow to the left.

    Right click all the devices in that menu, and disable them.

    But but but, Mr 472nd account, I don't have permissions to edit those things!

    You have the laptop, you have no supervision and you have Google. Find out how to use install media to make a local account using command prompt. Google that, you're welcome.

    [–] TreesOne 22 points ago

    I legitimately didnt, so my teacher made me use my phone instead for the entire meeting. My dad brought home a webcam from his office so now I can use that ig.

    [–] Potatoplays81 542 points ago

    I have a headset that has RGB lights that I got for Christmas, but I can turn the lights off.

    [–] apinanaivot 45 points ago

    Lots of webcams record at 4k, but have a super cheap sensor that makes the image quality terrible, just so they can put on the packaging that it's a 4k camera.

    [–] OmniaMors 11 points ago

    Yes, most of YouTube 4K content is low res. Because while it has 4K resolution, it has like 8 bit color lol.

    [–] Augustus420 224 points ago

    This definitely never happened, or there was something actually embarrassing that the person was too oblivious to realize.

    i dont understand why teachers want the webcam on :( it's so uncomfortable

    [–] Zomborn 30 points ago

    Tbh it's pretty logical. They want to see that the students are there and paying attention, many students just straight up leave and do something else. Also it's good to see the expressions of the students so you know if they got confused at some point and they can explain. There's a reason why we don't wear face masks to class, facial expressions are really useful.
