Sure is easy to do which makes this pretty scary.

Pretty scary. I know it seems like I say this all the time, but I actually wrote a paper about 2 years ago on the potential danger and privacy issues that go along with the development of RFID... especially as it would eventually become cheap enough for anyone to have/use. Something like what was in this video was one of my examples!

At some point, you will walk by a coke machine and it will suggest your favorite soda to you. The checkout stand at your retailer will have special advertising just for you based on your consumption patterns.

It's a pretty cool thing in terms of technology and possible convenience use. But it also comes with a lot of possibly danger as well.

This isn't a partisan political issue ... yet you feel obliged to attempt to make it one.

Two posts back and already trolling.
