BACK COVER #Big Brother gets up close and personal.
Do you know about RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification)? Well you should, because in just a few short years, this explosive new technology could tell marketers, criminals, and government snoops everything about you.
Welcome to the world of spychips, where tiny computer chips smaller than a grain of sand will track everyday objects--and even people--keeping tabs on everything you own and everywhere you go. In this startling, eye-opening book, you'll learn how powerful corporations are planning a future where:
- Strangers will be able to scan the contents of your purse or briefcase from across a room.
- Stores will change prices as you approach-squeezing extra profits out of bargain shoppers and the poor.
- The contents of your refrigerator and medicine cabinet will be remotely monitored.
- Floors, doorways, ceiling tiles, and even picture frames will spy on you--leaving virtually no place to hide.
- Microchip implants will track your every move--and even broadcast your conversations remotely or electroshock you if you step out of line.
