Make sure you're showing the room-sound-recording available through Sub7
with a soundcard(+ mike) installed on the compromised host.

I don't know why, but from my experience that's shocking the unsavvy more'n
anything else. Some of the savvy, too.
I guess it has to do with a lot of high-level-morons (like that:) not
knowing anything sensible to do with computer data anyway (why should
anyone else be interested?), and storing passwords on a sticker at the
monitor (so why the hassle?). For those, audio is a lot more tangible.

Take one of those monitors with builtin mikes and speakers to show that one
might be equipped without seeing at first glance.

And when they're listening in on the secretaries (for example), quite a lot
get a feeling for the thrill a script kiddie experiences as well. Talk
about motivation.
