Creating and starring in your own reality TV show has never been so easy, thanks to the latest batch of security cameras for the home.

For the past week, I have been watching a matrix of screens on my office computer showing live action in my house, from vacuuming in the living room to conversations in the kitchen, workmen laying a floor in the hall, squirrels shooting across the driveway and deliveries at the door.

Twitter users are often quick to congratulate themselves on breaking a big news event and this morning’s reaction to news of Osama bin Laden’s death has been no different.

Tech news from around the web:
