Guardian Unlimited | Online | Coming to a bin near you, the spy that tells how much rubbish you create

Spy tells how much rubbish you create. OK, so now RFID is being used to monitor trash? Wow! Microchips are being inserted into trash bins to tell city officials how much trash is produced by British citizens. This is clearly getting way out of hand. What CAN be done with microchips WILL eventually be done by entrepreneurs seeking ways to make their products and service better. In most cases, that will involve monitoring and tracking behaviors of consumers. When the government gets involved in that monitoring and tracking, we will have big brother claims and fears and abuses. Gotta love it.
