In France we are passed majors in the sector :
Their new invention is called "pass navigo" :
It's a system they try to impose to replace transport tickets. A card, of course. This system received the Big Brother Award 2002 because it record
all your moves in public transports of Paris area. Officially, these records are only use in "statistics"... Officially, but now the cops can know
where you go, when you go and if your friends have the same pass (like 70 % of the Parisians), with who you were...
Combined with "Moneo" (I dont know why they like the word ryming in O : Navigo, Moneo, NWO...) : An electronic payement card, only usable for
payment under 15.24 Ä, wich is censed replace bills and coin for 20??, and which also record all of your buys...
