The first one seems to be a software problem in the camera itself, lucky for HP that it can be fixed with a firmware upgrade.

I have to wonder if the second one is really something that happened recently. For being a conference in Japan there seems to be some old laptops on those tables!

The photos are not really that clear, though they look rather large. I surely got a drift they were trying to harm DELL in the way it was reported. :o
