Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Purchase and Watch Your Every Move
RFID technology is incredibly convenient. Imagine making it possible to make your clothes, your car keys, and even items in the fridge talk to sensors in your house. You'd always know where your socks are, never lose your keys, and be able to take inventory of your fridge with a quick scan from your phone. All of this is possible now with RFID, but it also assumes that no one is using it maliciously.
Spychips explains not only what is possible, but what is happening now where companies are testing and evaluating uses for RFID that are creepy, invasive, and downright wrong. Like many other advances in tech, we can't stop RFID and shouldn't either, but we do need to make sure it's used responsibly and that requires understanding the threat.
