Many people laugh when someone says that the government would like to see us all implanted with RFID, but beleive it or not, the technology is already here. Guess what? The marketing campaign has already begun.
Or, if that doesnt sell it to the masses, how about if it looks like it will save your life?
Face it, put shit on a stick, package it in cellophane and people will collect coupons to get it at the best price. Its coming, and people will beg for it.
Right now if you have a cell phone, it is printed on the included documents and on the cell phone itself,
"This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation."
Now why does my phone have to accept something that I dont desire it to? By the end of that, I'm imagining a van outside my house marked "Dry Cleaners", and inside, one cop is pointing a transmitter at my window and saying to the other, "heh heh, this will teach him to listen to Aqua!"
(1) is straightforward enough, but what does (2) mean? Why does it need to "accept any interference received", and what would constitute not accepting it?
How about having your clothing tracked AFTER YOU PURCHASE IT?
Wal-Mart Radio Tags to Track Clothing
On a side note, the first video is from 2007, how many things do you own by now that track you. Try this, place your pretty new drivers licence (the one with the nice gold colored chip in it) next to a strong magnet, then wait for your bills to pile up. :)
