RE: How to dismantle the RFID?
By T. Rawat 2004-06-11 04:33:52 PM
Let me add as well that there are basic laws of physics that need to be overcome in order for anyone's privacy fears to be realized. For example, let's say I do buy something at Walmart that has a tag in it. When I finish my shopping, I put my bags in the trunk of my car and haed for home, possibly stopping for gas on the way. Even if Walmart owned the gas station and had outfitted it with RFID readers (which is exactly what Mobil Speedpass is, by the way), they wouldn't be able to read through the metal in my car and see what is in my trunk. UHF RFID, which is what Walmart and the DoD are mandating, is notoriously bad around metal. So, basically, all my stuff is shielded from being read simply because it is in my car (unless my car is a Fiero).
