Big Brother gets up close and personal.
Do you know about RFID (Radio Frquency IDentification)? Well, you should, because in just a few short years, this explosive new technology could tell marketers, criminals, and government snoops everything about you.
Welcome to the world of spychips, where tiny computer chips smaller than a grain of sand will trace everyday objects?and even people?keeping tabs on everything you own and everywhere you go. In this startling, eye-opening book, you'll learn how powerful corporations are planning a future where:
This is no conspiracy theory. Hundreds of millions of dollars have already been invested in what global corporations and the government are calling "the hottest new technology since the bar code." Unless we stop it now, RFID could strip away our last shreds of privacy and usher in a nightmare world of total surveillance?to keep us all on Big Brother's very short leash.
What critics are saying about Spychips, the book:
Spychips "make[s] a stunningly powerful argument against plans for RFID being mapped out by government agencies, retail and manufacturing companies." ?Evan Schuman, CIO Insight
"The privacy movement needs a book. I nominate Spychips." ?Marc Rotenberg, EPIC
"Brilliantly written; so scary and depressing I want to put it down, so full of fascinating vignettes and facts that Ican't put it down." ?Author Claire Wolfe
Spychips "makes a very persuasive case that some of America's biggest companies want to embed tracking technology into virtually everything we own, and then study our usage patterns 24 hours a day. It's a truly creepy book and well worth reading." ?Hiawatha Bray, Boston Globe
"You REALLY want to read this book." ?Laissez Faire
