I hope we don't get the usual dismissive, idiot responses that abound on the "internets" or the spineless "if-you-have-nothing-to-hide-why-worry-about-it" crap from the
conformist corner.

It's not conformist to assume that there are people working at Apple who feel the same way about personal security and who wouldn't allow the product to go ahead without testing the ability to know the screen camera is definitely off.

It's an interesting point about the use of glossy displays. It's real benefit is it's transmissive properties, which is what makes images and text sharper so Apple could well be gearing up for this eventually.

If they go all glossy with the new Mac laptops, a lot of pros are gonna be seriously pissed off though so I don't think it will be a concern as there will be an option to have the camera or not.

Personally I HATE immensely glossy screens. Apple, please, bring back the matte option on all your hardware.
