This is the latest in a series of weekend posts highlighting a wide variety of applications we think are pretty cool. Most have to do with sales, marketing and productivity. Check out past featured apps here.

This isn’t an app, per se, and I’m not sure it’s a gadget either.  But with privacy concerns abounding, more people are covering their laptop webcam lenses with a piece of electrical tape.

As someone who more frequently uses that webcam for good (video conferences, webinar recordings, etc.) I don’t really want a sticky piece of tape up there.

At a conference late last year, I got a nifty sliding webcam cover from Aviso.  You can get them easily on Amazon as well.  They basically stick around that little webcam lens and let you slide it open and shut at will.

Thin and unobtrusive.  Worth checking out.
