Spychips: how major corporations and government plan to track your every move with RFID by Katherine Albrecht

Not enough people are bothered by having to use a grocery store courtesy card to get discounts on their purchases, so we shouldn’t be surprised to discover the insidious nature of RFID (radio frequency identification).

But we should be worried that large corporations and the government are busy developing this technology, that although it can be used for good, will most assuredly also be used for nefarious reasons.

It wouldn’t take much for RFID to track your every move – technology already exists to weave RFID threads into clothing that can’t be removed and isn’t harmed by washing.  Most worrisome would be RFID implanted into shoes since it is rare for someone to wear another’s shoes.  With chips in the soles of shoes and selected readers in floors, it wouldn’t take much for the government to know where you’ve been and when. 

Do you really want them to have this power?  I certainly don’t and I found this book frightening.  In addition to the book, the author is also the founder of CASPIAN and is working worldwide to get out the word.

It is well known that marketing executives are the bottom feeders of the business world, so read this book to find out how they plan to manipulate you into buying even more crap you don’t need and can’t afford.

This is a must read book – A+.
