Well I'll be danged, we agree on something. Like I said, religious prophecy aside, you have nothing to lose but your privacy.
I'm just a tad disturbed that it's such an easy decision for some people who repsonded recently. I'm not gonna point fingers, but it was Gazrok.
I take my privacy pretty seriously. I prefer older vehicles because I don't want a computer ratting me out for my driving habits. It's not gonna be
long before your car can report your position and traffic infractions in real time- you can count me out of that.
My ex and I moved out of an apartment once because they put in a street camera across the way from us. They city promised they'd find a way to limit
the camera's view of apartment windows, but sure enough a city employee was caught peeping with that camera 2 years later on the same building I had
lived in. Imagine the possibilities for that one why dont you? The city of Palm Springs can look right in a citizens window and find out who he's
screwing if they are looking for leverage over him!
I won't even join a supermarket's discount club. Do you know why? They keep track of your pruchases. I heard a story once about a tow-truck driver
who was blackmailed out of a lawsuit because the store had record of how much alcohol he bought.
They can give me a chip, but they aren't putting it in me. If that becomes standard form they can put it on my key-ring or something. I don't want a
mugger to cut my hand off. I'll just give him my keyring then call the bank and cancel my chip.
I don't see this happening anytime soon, but if somebody tells me that I either take a chip or can't purchase things I'll say good, I'd rather
