What scares me right now is the RFID tags which I heard one of the people behind spychips.com on WBAI radio the other day talk about.

I knew of RFID, but I had no idea how far this thing can go to invade privacy and profile people. It can find you and tell people where you've been.

It can also profile you as a consumer as well.....
