Pretty sad now we have to run the magnets over our products when we get home. Oh well, guess this is a sad thing to hear about.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "
Thomas Jefferson

So shop at second hand stores that have the clothes before all this started? Hmmm

Don't you love the way the article stated it was to prevent employee theft???

The first article said they could find no instance of this happening in North America, but is it just a matter of time??? The video and listening portion is going a bit far, isn't it??

Hope,

Thank you for the information.

That shows the price of the RFID chips have dropped substantially but nothing about GPS devices.

My son might be interested in buying one of those RFID things to keep track of my 13 year-old granddaughter.

Like many children, she sincerely believes there is nobody out to take advantage of her; that she should be allowed to go anywhere at anytime; and that those reports you hear about things happening to other young girls? That doesn't happen in her neighborhood or town.

Come to think of it, how did my children live to grow up.

Oh, right. All the parents of all the kids in the same age group in the neighborhood knew each other and tattled on the little snots.

Right again. A new family with small children moved into the neighborhood two years ago, three houses down. I don't think I've seen the children since the moving van pulled away.

Think I should call the Police?

A Large magnet can disable the RFID.

While I may have been born at night, it wasn't last night.

If the cost of a GPS device such as this, is so low, why the blazes does mine cost so much - oh, she talks to me.

If y'all well check your general population GPS devices, you will find them accurate to between 10-50 meters (~ 12-63 feet).

That might make it close enough to choose between two to four houses, but to the door?

The only technology available in the United States, by law, of that sensitive of a nature to pin-point a single door, is restricted to the military - and they don't sell soap.

The reason for my knowledge on GPS devices? My back-channel contacts with special friends.

WalMart tracking jean sizes? They can do that with the technology they currently use for inventory control when you check out.

Why would they risk a civil law suit that would bankrupt them?

Plus, Michelle would never allow her b*tt size to be available to anyone who built a GPS scanner. On the other hand, BO might want to track her .....

Actually there are many things already tagged with RFID; lots of clothes, shoes, bags, etc.

GPS in detergent boxes was the first I'd heard of GPS tagging.

Anyone know where to buy an RFID inactivator? You should pass it over all purchases and gifts.

I think I will NOT buy any more of their product, AND tell them why AND tell all my friends do do the same thing! Maybe even post on facebook which I will do now!
