Big Brother and his evil ideas at work again:

Marc Rotenberg, executive director of a watchdog organization, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, said retailers should be required to disable the tags before a consumer leaves a store.

I think you hit the nail on the head with that one Freddie!

Imagine the advances on such equipment? It is a sensor no? Could it not be used to retain ones whole consumer history for a product?

Mr. Freddie, happy to see you in BigBroMart!! Would you like more of those mini-discs??
