RFID Tagging Consumer Goods Cradle to Grave

Wired News: Time to Buy a New Shirt, Dave suggests this linked story headline referencing Hal, the computer, and Dave the Astronaut in 2001 a Space Odyssey. The story discusses how product manufacturers want to encourage consumers to feel good about RFID tagging of consumer goods, keep those tags intact on products after purchase and allow internet "Silent Commerce" to help us know when to replace our products. This will supposedly be done through internet connected devices throughout our homes, from refrigerator to closets. Judas! This is getting creepy! Are these guys actually serious?
