Nashville, TN–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–June 6, 2006–Imagine a world of no more privacy, where hidden radio frequency scanners will be constantly pointed at you, wirelessly reading microchips embedded in your clothing, shoes, bank cards and even your own flesh.
It’s the ultimate in “Big Brother,” and according to the explosive new book, Chips Espías: Cómo las grandes corporaciones y el gobierno planean monitorear cada uno de sus pasos con RFID. (Editorial 10 Puntos) Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track your Every Move with RFID (published by Nelson Current, late 2005) companies including Wal-Mart, Target, Gillette, Proctor & Gamble, Kraft, IBM, and even the U.S. government have all invested in making this a reality within the next decade.
Welcome to the world of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), where tiny computer chips smaller than a grain of sand will track everyday objects—and even people—keeping tabs on everything you own and everywhere you go.
While it sounds far-fetched and futuristic, it’s already here and documented in Chips Espías, written by Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre. These two irrepressible privacy advocates have uncovered extraordinarily detailed plans to use this new technology to watch us all.
The authors are not making this up. Hundreds of millions of dollars have already been invested in what global corporations are calling the hottest new technology since the bar code—and billions more are in the balance. Wal-Mart’s top suppliers are already on board with RFID tracking, and high-level former government officials like Tommy Thompson and Tom Ridge have joined the boards of major RFID companies. In fact, Thompson, former Secretary of Health and Human Services, now sits on the board of the VeriChip human implant company and has publicly suggested RFID implants for us all.
Chips Espías: Cómo las grandes corporaciones y el gobierno planean monitorear cada uno de sus pasos con 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.
