RE: How to dismantle the RFID?

Bear in mind that your privacy concerns rest on the assumption that the government, or anyone else for that matter, is actually interested in the trivial details of your life.

I'd counter that the only info generated by RFID technology that is at all relevant is the aggregated data that is created. ie: No one cares about which type of hemorroid cream you've put into your shopping cart - they only want to know if they need to send another crate of it to your local Wal-Mart or pharmacy.

For you paranoids out there who fear that the government is going to use this information against you, bear in mind that they are already able to listen in to any and all phone conversations that you might have. The Patriot Act permits the government to force librarians to tell them what you've been reading online at the public library.

I'd advise you to get over your privacy concerns relating to RFID - no one cares about what you're buying, unless it's TNT or fertilizer.
