Why spend so much time on this issue you may ask? Because people need to know what their near future is going to be like. No matter what we may believe. This is the technology that is sweeping over the World at a very fast pace.

Since Wal-Mart is taking such a beating for just marking their inventory items. I find it amazing how so many will not touch the very bill that will place this tags on all Humans in Not just America but all those who enter or around us as well.

When he's not listening in to GSM phone calls, Chris Paget has been busy seeing at what distance an RFID tag can be read, managing a respectable 217 feet.

As Paget explains in his report (pdf) Gen2 readers are more akin to radar in that they send out a radio signal
