RFID Chips: A Privacy And Security Pandora's Box?

Junker:
Yes, exactly. Good coverage, thank you Byron.

Well, this monster has a lot of inertia and it seems there is little one or anyone can do to stop it or even slow it down.

So what's the average bloke supposed to do to maintain privacy?  Surely there are some workarounds, such as AFFORDABLE detection?  Seems that the first thing to do is actually detect these darn things...

It would be sweet to have a PDA (or similarly sized innocent looking device) with RFID scan capability...  Since it is a receiver only, no FCC 'permission' should be required?  Or would it have to be sophisticated enough to send out a 'waking' frequency to the RFID chip to force a 'talk back'?
