Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Move with RFID Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Compiling massive amounts of research with firsthand knowledge, "Spychips" reveals the history and future of master planners' strategies to spy on Americans without their knowledge or consent.

Synopsis:

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.

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
