  1. Hi Pam! No, didn't realize the new TOS. I'm not here to start trouble. Switched to Mambo I see. More friendly search engine urls? You all getting rich with adsense yet? Take care...
  2. Well, another prediction comes true as of this thursday (you'll have to search for my list of "predictions".. they are either deleted by mods or buried deep) MSNBC reported today, the official "GPS Tracking phones" for "protecting your kids" will be available for sign up on the sprint website starting Thursday. Of course, the "technology" is already in most phones (how convienient) so you won't have to go outta your way to employ the new technology. And of course, as the last 3 years of my absence from this board has shown, the govt would NEVER use this technology on the american
  3. hmm. haven't been here in a Looooong time, but let me offer a different perspective. Actually it's incredibly easy to sue the CRAs and IMO everyone should be doing it. Ok, ok, not EVERYONE. But just about everyone. Wanna see the CRAs straigten up and fly right? If more people would sue, then I'd expect to see some changes instead of the same ole, same ole. In my experience, it took no more effort to sue the CRAs then it did to simply do the same amount of research than it would have taken otherwise. That said, i DID my research well before even writing my first lett

  6. RFID Family Tracking Systems Now At Theme Parks 2-7-5 "This project suggests that RFID will take the world into new places that no one has even thought of yet." "RFID is virtually synonymous today with supply chain initiatives, but SafeTzone's system demonstrates the kinds of creative applications beyond product tracking that can be enabled by the technology," -- Cliff Horwitz, chairman, CEO and president of SAMSys Technologies Inc. SafeTzone® Installs SAMSys RFID Readers at Fun Parks To Perform Key Functions for Family Locator System TORONTO (PRNewswire-FirstCall)
  7. US To Slap Tourists With RFID By Jo Best Silicon.com 1-26-5 Passport? Check. Insurance? Check. RFID chip? The US Department of Homeland Security has decided to trial RFID tags in an effort to make sure only the right sort of people get across US borders. The controversial US-VISIT scheme for those visiting the US from abroad already fingerprints holidaymakers on their way into the country and is now adding RFID to the mix in order to improve border management, the department said. The trials will start at a "simulated port" in the spring and will then be extended to Nogal
  8. Microchip To Allow Wallet-Free Drinking By Auslan Cramb Scottish Correspondent The Telegraph - UK 1-17-5 A Scottish nightclub is about to become the first in Britain to offer its customers the chance to have a microchip implanted in their arm to save them carrying cash. The "digital wallet", the size of a grain of rice, guarantees entry to the club and allows customers to buy drinks on account. Brad Stevens, owner of Bar Soba in Glasgow, said his customers had responded enthusiastically to the idea. The VeriChip is inserted by a medical professional and then scanned for its
  9. GPS spying may prove irresistible to police By Hiawatha Bray | January 17, 2005 As I write this, my car is parked in The Boston Globe's parking lot. Of course, if you're a cop, you may already know this. ADVERTISEMENT It's possible the police have attached an electronic tracking device to my humble Ford Contour, enabling them to track its every voyage. Unlikely, but possible -- and perfectly legal, according to a federal court ruling handed down in New York this month. It seems that police have an unlimited right to use digital technology to track our movements, all in the name o
  10. /http://www.nytimes.com/2004/11/17/technology/ November 17, 2004 In Texas, 28,000 Students Test an Electronic Eye By MATT RICHTEL PRING, Tex. - In front of her gated apartment complex, Courtney Payne, a 9-year-old fourth grader with dark hair pulled tightly into a ponytail, exits a yellow school bus. Moments later, her movement is observed by Alan Bragg, the local police chief, standing in a windowless control room more than a mile away. Chief Bragg is not using video surveillance. Rather, he watches an icon on a computer screen. The icon marks the spot on a map where Courtney got o
  11. RFID promoter can't stand being tracked By Ashlee Vance in Chicago Published Thursday 30th September 2004 23:15 GMT It's apparently okay for RFID tag promoters to watch you apply lipstick from 750 miles away, but not for a privacy advocate to keep an eye on companies using the pesky technology. Yes, the cloak and dagger operations of consumer trackers have come under the microscope and it's not to the liking of Frontline Solutions. The conference organizer sent a letter to CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering), requiring that the organization pull dow
  12. FDA Approves Use Of Implantable Chip In Patients By Diedtra Henderson The Seattle Post-Intelligencer 10-13-4 WASHINGTON -- The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday approved an implantable computer chip that can pass a patient's medical details to doctors, speeding care. VeriChips, radio frequency microchips the size of a grain of rice, have already been used to identify wayward pets and livestock. And nearly 200 people working in Mexico's attorney general's office have been implanted with chips to access secure areas containing sensitive documents. Delray Beach, Fla.-b
  13. You are on to something Tee. Something very very "different" ia going on with nature right now. 5 hurricanes lvl 3 or higher in 4 weeks all making landfall. - never happened before. Earthquakes in Cali. Tornadoes and flooding all over the east. Unprecedented 7 year drought in most of the US. Mt. St. Helens about to erupt again. Even a earthquake in Isreal (unheard of before) a few weeks back!.
  14. Big Boss Is Watching By Ben Charny Staff Writer CNET News.com 9-25-4 Cell phones are giving employers new ways to check up on employees in the field--and raising fresh workplace privacy concerns as a result. On the leading edge of the trend is Nextel Communications. The wireless provider began selling its Mobile Locator service last November, giving bosses an easy way to find employees who carry GPS-equipped cell phones. Earlier this month, mobile tracking firm Xora showed off the latest version of its Nextel GPS (global positioning system) phone software. The company says 1
  15. RFID Tracking Devices To Go In Consumer Clothes From Katherine Albrecht 9-27-4 I have disturbing news from the RFID front lines. CASPIAN has uncovered evidence of industry plans to deploy RFID tracking devices in consumer clothing items. A $600 million company called Checkpoint has developed prototype labels containing RFID spychips for Abercrombie & Fitch, Calvin Klein, and Champion sportswear. These tags contain tiny computer chips with unique ID numbers that can be read remotely by anyone with the right equipment. CNET picked up the story on Friday, September 24th. You
