No really, you have no privacy

Security and privacy are even more at odds, according to this opinionated report on The Register (articles there are looking more and more like blogs, which is good and bad).

How long before US citizens are required to carry ID's with biometrics \*and\* RFID tags that can be read remotely, say by a passing patrol car which feeds data to computers that may be accessed by a dozen agencies? And how long before you don't carry them but have them embedded, say in your fore-arm?

I used to say the US was a great place to visit (some world-class natural beauty), but I grow less sure of that. Is the US simply at the forefront with "national security" and other countries will follow? I hope not.

Your concern will be brought before the highest levels in The People's Communist States of North America. Thank you for your concern. (Red and proud.)
