Hmm. Just caught this off the AP newswire, caught my attention.

Source Article

Here's an excerpt:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Manufacturing conglomerate 3M Co. said Tuesday it has agreed to pay $230 million in cash for an Israeli company that makes technology used to keep track of people.

The Israeli company, Attenti Holdings SA, makes systems that use global positioning system and radio frequency technology to track, for example, the movements of people awaiting trial or are on probation and those of patients in senior care centers.

Now, if you don't know who 3M is.. well, they are huge, operating in 60 countries, producing a ton of products...

No claim of an actual conspiracy here, unless others have some fresh input into the people behind 3M?? I just thought it was a rather interesting business investment for this company..
