Read all about what big business and the new world order have done, are doing and plan to do with RFID technology in this book Face it folks the Orwellian state is here While some people are waking up and trying to fight it in whatever way they can the masses of sheeple, even if shown the facts about whats happening in the world could care less just so long as they can watch tv, play video games and eat McDonalds and potato chips.
Imagine a world of no privacy return return That is the first sentence of and apprehension that motivates Spychips, an exploration of the history, technology and perceived dangers of Radio Frequency IDentification RFID tags RFID tags are silicon computer chips with a unique identification number and a flat metallic antenna attached The antenna allows the chip to communicate with RFID readers via radio waves The chips, some as small as a grain of sand, can be imbedded in anything from products, [...]
This book had me ripping RFID tags out of every place I could find them Oddly, I found it to be a bit too paranoid The authors were knowledgeable enough about the topic to know that it is pointless to resist But still, somehow they retain hope that resistance is possible Personally, given the ease of use of this technology, and the countless ways which it will invade our lives over the next few years, I can t imagine any future BUT the nightmare dystopia they envision.Actually, they don t envisi [...]
Definitely not a Light Read If you want a glimpse of how not only Big Brother but all the corporations in search of gathering and data on you via the use of RFID chips, this book will scare the heck outta you Some may not like it because of it s technical detail, but it s somewhat integral to understanding how these things work, what their limitations are and what exactly these Data Miners are in search of It s chilling to read this because the common man or woman on the streets has no idea of [...]
To me, this is a scary read of what the future is most certainly to hold In this day in age when we a re being watched almost everywhere we go it will not take long until the government and businesses are tracking us via these RFID chips If you want to see what companies would like to do with the products we buy and the big brother capability of technology you need to read this book Then you need to join fight to keep our private life private.
According to , five stars indicates it was amazing In this case those five stars should be interpreted as scary as hell Anyone who is concerned about privacy, personal liberty and or the collusion between government and business should take a look through this book I feel obligated to point out that Thomas Nelson publisher of the hardback edition is a religious book publisher it doesn t matter I am one of the first people to point and laugh at over the top religious whackjobs, and I found this b [...]
Horribly and sadly misinformed Lots of conjecture about what could happen but very slim on facts about reality Judging by the follow up book The Spychips Threat Why Christians Should Resist RFID and Electronic Surveillance , the author seems to believe that the expansion of RFID technology is a precursor of the biblical end of days, and that RFID is essentially the same as the mark of the beast On its face, the idea is pretty silly to me In the book itself, Albrecht has the opportunity to make a [...]
This is a damn scary book And its all true And its happening right under our noses Wake up people, youre not alone Big Brother isnt necessarily the government Let s see if you keep your shopping card after this book You will begin to wonder just how deep and secretive these companies can be in your life Might make you look at all those antennas they re constructing on the highways differently Remember 1984 its reallllllll.
Ok boys and girls, time to get out your tinfoil hats because it s the end of the world Full of paranoid, worst case scenario what ifs, little actual info The follow on bood is The Spychips Threat Why Christians Should Resist RFID and Electronic Surveillance A pity trees had to die for this book
A great read if your into this stuff as I am History of RFID chips, how and why your shopping cards are used The scare of the RFID drivers license Bush tried to push through and failed The surgically implanted Medical chip idea A good read.
There is much information here on a topic that is rarely discussed RFID chips Katherine Albrecht has honed in on the outcomes of this type of world, where chips are everywhere She also looks into the future, and it s not a pretty picture I found this to be a very informative read.
An objective 1984 and then some If you enjoy non fiction and liked _1984_ and _Little Brother_ or simply care about privacy then read this book.Also, the author has a podcast radio show and web sites for this and related privacy projects.
Although somewhat outdated, I was amazed at the technology available in the mid decade I would be interested in learning what new steps have been taken by CASPIAN and the authors of this book in the interim since the book was published An internet search revealed very little since that time.
Subject matter that everyone should be made aware exists Our material society has become much too complaisant in our buying habits While this is an alarming read, it is well written and full of information.
Recommended to me by my sister.
Interesting Pretty propaganda y As far as I m concerned privacy doesn t really exist anyways.
Excellent content not the best writing Definitely worth reading.
Pretty damn creepy And considering it s several years old, it s probably less creepy than reality.
Jolting what if scenarios if you value your privacy
Listen to Katherine Albrecht.
Great book, but due to the subject material s nature, this is a bit of a downer.
I prefer that messianic authors do a better job of hiding their message.
I don t want to seem paranoid but the implications contain in this book are disturbing.
Solid read into the scary world of RFID chips and how information on individuals is tracked and compiled.
I will want to read this again in a few years to see what has actually transpired
Freaked me out and made me mad this woman has really done her homework and is a crusader for our privacy It is scary what these big corporations think they can put over on us.
Worth the read for the information, but not the writing The facts are scary enough on their own without the sensationalist writing And obviously a little outdated.
Interesting enough, but a little on the paranoid side Some very good information on RFID technology though.
