Re: Microchip implant replacing credit cards

lol

Mark of the beast, much. I've heard that this is where we were heading ever since I can remember. Whether it's true or not doesn't negate the obvious fact. That yes, it's yet anohter way for easy tracking. And that is already bad enough with Google in eveerything now.

 

While most of us really have nothing to hide, it's not really about that. Not that we want some stanger knowing every little detail about us out of context. It's ultimatley about how invasive it truly is, and what sort of abuse can arise from it. We already get excessive telemarketing from companies, due to our info being sold. 

 

I'll admit teh chip is an interesting/neat idea, not having to carry a wallet with ID, Cash, CC, and all the other crap that's in there. But what if that chip malfunctions when out of town, or worse out of the Country? Or you know, the age old ID fraud? The easier it is simplified for us, the easier it is for them.

Taking it one step further, I'd be quite worried about potential long term health concerns. We don't need to be irradiated any further than we already are.

 

But yeah, this is way over the top.
