    Are there spy chips in your clothes?
    Interesting that Levi Strass has something to do with spychips.

    Were these type of chips not thought beneficial to potential kidnap victims? That would have to the be best idea to protect children and even pets. But I don't think I really want anyone knowing where I take off my pants!

    What can we do about these companies who do what they want? We could all boycott their products - if that will do any good.

    I'm speachless.

    You can try boycotting but if you boycotted all retailers and wholesalers that used RFIDs you'd be stuck making your own goods - it's everywhere. Usually it's on the packaging so once opened you're OK but the embedded chips in the jeans is a little worrisome. Of course you do need to have readers close by to pick up the faint signal.

    This practice of embedding these chips in the product should be outlawed and standards written saying where RFIDs can be used. At the very least someone should be tracking the goods that have embedded chips.

    Probably in the near future,your clothes will have an invisible bar code,only detected by stealth,which will tell jeansubuy,or such,how many times your product was washed,what time you folded them up at night,and what rubbish dump they eventually ended up at.Then again,if the product burst into flames,due to faulty design,the lawyers out there would have a field day. :D

    Almost all products in America use these in one form or another, as stated on most they are on the inside of a box or container, but on clothes the problem has been that on a tag, they are merely cut off.

    Of course now I guess Bush can know if you have your pants on or off,
    Personally I don't want to know who is answering these questions with or without pants
