RFIDs on the Brain

Shared by reBlog @ Eyebeam

Here's Patrick Dixon, of Siemens, advertising as features all the things about RFID tags that I always thought should bother people the most. The first time I watched this, I figured it was The Yes Men having one over on the Ascent Business Leadership Forum.

I mean - it's all there: implanted RFIDs with human brain tissue growing naturally over them, total surveillance, predictive marketing... I suppose it's possible I'm still seeing this out of context - and that the speaker is actually pointing out how scary and strange this stuff gets. But I don't think so.

My favorite bit may be the reaction shot of one of the businessmen, who seems to be actually considering whether he is now fully and irrevocably engaged with the dark side of the force.

(Thanks, Joe, for sending it my way.)

I took my first mortgage loans when I was very young and this helped my family a lot. But, I need the financial loan as well.

Some time before, I needed to buy a building for my firm but I did not have enough money and could not buy anything. Thank heaven my colleague proposed to try to get the mortgage loans at trustworthy bank. Thence, I acted that and used to be satisfied with my commercial loan.
