Supermarkets in UK used them to track, of all things, razor blades!

Apparently a lot of people (presumably male http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif) were nicking them. Perhaps a protest at the high cost they are these days....

Bit of an uproar over it in the end, something to do with human rights.
Which is quite funny really when you consider those same people probably use loyalty cards.....The stores know what you're eating.....

Well it is interesting in that unfortunately its just one step in an evolving progression of tracking our every movement.

well, I am working with RFID technolgy for the past 18 months... a fun thing to tell you, is that for the countless number of academic and commerical RFID conferences I attended, I saw or heard a speaker mentioned about a spit / 109 in over half of them.... But people seem to be unimpressed... well, except me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
