Ask any number of people if they'd voluntarily have a chip inserted under their skin, in order to pay for groceries, to be tracked and to facilitate
communication, I'd bet %95 percent would say"Hell NO".
Then I came across this:
Your Cell Phone as a Wallet by Anu Partanen Friday, March 13, 2009 by CNNMoney.com
Upstart Paymo, with the help of wireless carriers, aims to help U.S. consumers make mobile payments........ Forget cash, checks or plastic: In places
like Japan and Finland, consumers can pay for train rides or even merchandise with a wave of their phones or via text message. Then there's the U.S.
The mobile phone has yet to become a tool for payments here, largely because the different players in the mobile payment ecosystem --wireless
operators, banks, credit card companies and software providers -- have tended to squabble over how to divide the fees from such transactions.
.......Paymo, a two-year-old mobile payment network, says it has forged deals with four U.S. carriers AT&T, T-Mobile, Cellular One and Virgin
Mobile -- that will allow users to buy digital goods online and pay with their mobile phone..
....The service is already working in 45 countries....

Ok, so soon if not already we can pay for goods and services with our cellphones....then I came across this:
GSM mobile phone tracking system via the GPS-TRACK satellite network Based on repeater triangulation, the system tracks mobile phones using GPS and
GSM technology We are not responsible for possible tracking errors that may occur. Approximate margin of error: 10 meters (max.) for mobile phones
in Europe and the U.K. 25 meters (max.) for mobile phones in the U.S.A., South America and Canada. 50 meters (max.) for mobile phones elsewhere. This
system will not work in countries without GSM technology networks.
Mobile Phone Tracking - Know where your child is Posted: Apr 10th, 2009 |
All over the world, there has to be at least a case of child kidnapping that occurs. After the kidnapping, the kidnappers usually ask for very large
ransoms that are normally out of reach of the family affected.....
But I have good news for you. You can keep track of your child by using his/her phone. This will work well especially of your phone is a 3G
.....I say this because there is new software that has been created to help individuals track their phones after losing it or after a mugging or

Or this for further GPS tracking info:
So lets tie all this up. according to Wikipedia, in 2008 there were 4,100,000,000 cell phone subscriptions on our planet. Ok I grant you that not all
of them are as advanced as the phones in the articles. But for how long?
How long until all of them can be tracked and can be used to purchase good and services? ALL FROM THE PALM OF OUR HAND. How long before we get tired
of carrying all this around, tired of losing our Cells, having them stolen. How long before we say, you know, wouldn't it be easier to just have it
under our skin?
It's not a huge step from having a small black tracking device used for buying goods and for communication in the palm of our hands.....To having a
small tracking device used to buy goods LITERALLY in the palm of our hands.
