RDIF tags

There an important question worth asking, and that is, is Wal-Mart, the nation's largest retailer, declaring war on our privacy. The giant retailer has announced it will begin placing item-level RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) tracking tags on clothing sold in its stores.

THIS IS HUGE NEWS. It is the first step to the planned roll-out of the Internet of Things, where global corporations like IBM, Procter & Gamble, and Wal-Mart's technology partner NCR plan to equip every product with a tracking device and use a network of RFID readers to monitor and observe YOU everywhere you go. It is the frightening world detailed in a book called "Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Move with RFID," and it has finally come to pass.

As you know, RFID is a powerful tracking technology that raises unprecedented privacy concerns. Wal-Mart's plan does more than just threaten our privacy -- it is poised to become a direct threat to our freedom and civil liberties.

"RFID sort of lends itself to a surreptitious tracking model, simply because of the way the tech operates, silently and through radio waves. If people have an interest in surreptitious tracking, RFID is a natural candidate."

Technically Speaking
An Interview With Katherine Albrecht, Author & RFID Watchdog
Computer Power User | May 8, 2006 | by Barry Brenesal
CPU: What is your main concern about RFID technology?
Albrecht: Its an incredibly powerful technology that easily lends itself to abuse. RFID readers can be placed invisibly in the environment. RFID tags can be placed on clothes and in peoples belongings. And maybe the most worrisome part is that the companies that are aiming to put the readers in the environment and the tags into peoples belongings have spelled out some pretty frightening plans for how they hope to abuse the technology literally to use it to spy on people..."
