By the way, in case no one realize how RFIDs are being used to track people and to insecurely store personal information by the government and others, please read these articles:

Fighting mandatory RFID in schools

California school drops student RFID badges

FDA approves implanted RFID chip for humans

Feds considering more secure RFID passport scheme, and CA planning to ban RFID from state ID documents

All US passports to use RFID within a year

RFID chips can carry viruses

Not that RFIDs can be read from several feet away without your knowledge. I could carry a scanner in a backback, for example, and pick up people's passport info as I walk down the street.
