...Listening to NPR this morning, as I do every morning, I heard a story about RFID tags that will soon be showing up in everything we purchase. These tags remain in, or on, the product for the life of the product. Now, imagine...You're walking down the street, every thing you are wearing or carrying has this embeded technology. You are scanned, and then bombarded with instant ads from the store windows around you. You are regaled by ads for everything from shoes to underwear to the condoms in your wallet or birth control in your purse...this a la "Minority Report". Think this is science fiction? Wrong answer...Wal-Mart will be requiring this technology in all products passing through its doors by 2005. Traking and mangin inventory in the store is one thing. Whats happens once it's been bought and paid for is nobody's business. So, write your Congressional reps and put a stop to this invasive and easily abused technology. Not that it'll do any good since they've already been bought and paid for.
