Spychips : Imagine a world where everything you own - from your sneakers to your driver's license to your prescription medication - contains a tiny microchip that can transmit private information about you to marketers, criminals, or government agents. This isn't science fiction. In a few short years, it could be a fact of life. Spychips takes readers into the frightening world of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), where tiny computer chips may someday replace the bar code, allowing strangers to study your purchasing habits, peek at your medical history, and pinpoint your physical location. Global corporations and government agencies have already invested millions in this technology to track everyday objects - and even people. If left unchecked, RFID could soon destroy our privacy, radically alter the economy, and open the floodgates for civil liberties abuses.
