Lol, I have a laptop with a webcam, however since it's built into the bezel, I can't show it on the webcam.

BTW, what's the deadline for this contest?

Dave_HH 5 years ago

Right now we're set to 30 days, Gibbs! As far as the web cam, I have a perfect solution for you! Grab a mirror dude! See, I'm a genius! LOL

Sorry, as in 11/30/09 deadline!  We may pull it in though, not sure.  Come on folks!  You can do this.  You have tons of <HOT> gear to show I'm sure. :)

Okay, I'm not going to lie, I got a copy of Dragon Age Origins and completely forgot about the outside world...

Have done no work on this so far, thank God for the Nov 30th deadline!

This is kind of off topic, but my web-cam in my gateway unit has never worked right, and as of right now does not work at all I have tried to replace the drivers, uninstall and reinstall etc, but have never got it to work. Of course gateway says it's not in warranty anymore anyway. So what I want to know is if anyone on here has ever replaced the web-cam in a laptop? I of course have done it before when I did warranty work for Dell, HP, Compaq etc. However what I want to know is a quality web-cam replacement (aftermarket) for a laptop. I would like it to be as good as possible without breaking the bank of course.

Is yours built into the top of your screen bezel?

rapid1 4 years ago

yes it is it has never really worked.

Hey dave we need some new video dave coverage. Give us one on that new dell laptop or something.

Dave_HH 5 years ago

Have you guys seen the latest contest entry by the dude that quaded himself? Pretty cool! Come on, we need more Team HH members in there! :)

philmontero 5 years ago

Dave glad you enjoyed me quading myself on my video entry. Now if only I could do that for real I'd get a lot more work done (and get to play with a lot more tech). It wasn't easy getting the timing right on that! My wife was wondering why I had 4 dirty shirts for the laundry after just one day - LOL!

Okay, I don't even want an UltraHD, but I'm in. You'll get to see the horrible tech-sty I live in soon. I just need a little time to convince the wife that what she's filming is not for a Dateline expose justifying burning down the house.

Not just you Gibb.... I've been working 65+ hr weeks, so until this week I just couldn't find the time.... and then I spent all this week recuperating... sooo... nada from me.

Great work on the part of those who did compete though - very good stuff.
