RE: RFID Gets Hammered

fantastic.. I have a RFID chip in my student ID card and i can use it to buy food and open doors. They dont have that good of range even outside of my wallet i have to place the card within 4 inches of the reader, so I think worrying about someone else getting free stuff off your card is being a little irrational you would have to be very careless for that to happen along with being very close to them.

I just hope that one day everyone will be implanted with a chip that way we will all know the bad guys from the good guys and live in happiness and freedom.

Yea with avg meal on campus costing me $8 I understand why kids would like to try and steal ID's. But the RFID in cards are none powered and will only emit signals when placed next to a power unit, the other type of RFID is used in like parking garages that has batteries that power an emitter all the time now that you could steal.

Oh I am sure that a RFID tag will tell us who is a "bad guy".. Maybe the boogie man should wear one for you too.

Maybe I agree with you. We should have these implanted in the brains of people like you, and once you get near a computer BAM sends you into cardiac arrest.
