Item Description...
RFID, which stands for Radio Frequency IDentification, is a technology that uses computer chips smaller than a grain of sand to track items from a distance. And as this mind-blowing book explains, plans and efforts are being made now by global corporations and the U.S government to turn this advanced technology, these spychips, into a way to track our daily activities-and keep us all on Big Brother's short leash. Compiling massive amounts of research with firsthand knowledge, Spychips explains RFID technology and reveals the history and future of the master planners' strategies to imbed these trackers on everything-from postage stamps to shoes to people themselves-and spy on Americans without our knowledge or consent. It also urgently encourages consumers to take action now-to protect their privacy and civil liberties before it's too late

Publishers Description

Big Brother gets up close and personal.

Do you know about RFID (Radio Frquency IDentification)? Well, you should, because in just a few short years, this explosive new technology could tell marketers, criminals, and government snoops everything about you.

Welcome to the world of spychips, where tiny computer chips smaller than a grain of sand will trace everyday objects―and even people―keeping tabs on everything you own and everywhere you go. In this startling, eye-opening book, you'll learn how powerful corporations are planning a future where:

  • Strangers will be able to scan the contents of your purse or briefcase from across a room.
  • Stores will change prices as you approach-squeezing extra profits out of bargain shoppers and the poor.
  • The contents of your refrigerator and medicine cabinet will be remotely monitored.
  • Floors, doorways, ceiling tiles, and even picture frames will spy on you―leaving virtually no place to hide.
  • microchip implants will track your every move―and even broadcast your conversations remotely or electroshock you if you step out of line.

This is no conspiracy theory. Hundreds of millions of dollars have already been invested in what global corporations and the government are calling "the hottest new technology since the bar code." Unless we stop it now, 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.

What critics are saying about "Spychips," the book:

"Spychips" "make s] a stunningly powerful argument against plans for RFID being mapped out by government agencies, retail and manufacturing companies." ―Evan Schuman, CIO Insight

"The privacy movement needs a book. I nominate "Spychips."" ―Marc Rotenberg, EPIC

"Brilliantly written; so scary and depressing I want to put it down, so full of fascinating vignettes and facts that I "can't" put it down." ―Author Claire Wolfe

"Spychips ""makes a very persuasive case that some of America's biggest companies want to embed tracking technology into virtually everything we own, and then study our usage patterns 24 hours a day. It's a truly creepy book and well worth reading." ―Hiawatha Bray, "Boston Globe"

"You REALLY want to read this book." ―Laissez Faire

Reviews - What do our customers think?
mark of the beast  Jun 18, 2008
this is a must read. this is a technology that may one day be forced upon all peoples of the world. the book is well written and easy to follow.
Pulp Fiction, Pop Science  Sep 20, 2007
Albrecht's book is a sensational account of what could happen if the laws of physics were suspended and all men were created evil. It is pure fantasy. One of the reviewers said that only in America can someone with such limited knowledge and no credentials write a book about something they know little about. This is a silly book with mistatements galore. It does a disservice to those people who are true privacy advocates but wish to employ technology in a privacy enhancing way. False statements give rise to false fears and that is what Ms. Albrecht is all about. She needs to take a course or two on RFID before she writes about it.
A must read - everyone should know about the uses of RFID to track items, people, ???  May 13, 2007
This should be required reading in schools and colleges - people need to know how RFID can be used - for example, prices being changed based on who is purchasing an item - all people need to know how RFID can be used ethically - and unethically. And it seems corporations are not too hung up on ethics -
Everyone should read it  Apr 18, 2007
This is not light reading, but I truly think every American should read this book! I have heard Dr. Albrecht speak on numerous occasions, and I think that most of us in our nation are sleeping while our freedoms are chipped away. (no pun intended) Our right to privacy is one of the most personal freedoms.

After reading this book, you will think twice about EVERY purchase you make again! Not to mention answering personal questions while doing ordinary business every day.

A MUST READ! This is a highly documented and well-researched book.

I just purchased an extra copy to loan out to others.
The Road to 1984  Jan 15, 2007
Like many people, I have tended to neglect the downside of new technologies. Even though we are bombarded with advertising these days, it never occurred to me that supposedly responsible corporations would stoop to the lengths described in this book, such as literally spying on my movements while I am shopping! Parts of the book were a bit repetitive, but it certainly made me realize how very easily all of us could be led onto the road to 1984 and away from the privacy and freedoms we have long enjoyed.
