    I may not get one, I'm kind of old fashion (I don't even have a smart phone) but having a micro-chip would not be the end of the world depending on how its used.
    What with the government abusing it's power more and more, all the time, I'm absolutely opposed to it.

    On the surface, it sounds like a great idea, but it will be abused by the government.

    Would hate to see this be made mandatory, but I think it's a wonderful technology to be progressing as a potentialy volunteer basis.

    I agree with your last statement as a cheap form of ID but there's still more to it. There's too many possibilities for abuse and misuse for people to accept it, willingly, yet. They'll probably come out with an encrypted nano-tech tattoo next.
    That's a different usecase. What's the turnaround? Even 60 minutes would be plenty fast for a finger print search. We're talking 1-2 sec tops. And how many checks are we looking at? A fingerprint database wouldn't have to do thousands per second. What kind of processing power would that take? Bandwidth?

    I mean, we already have rfids in credit cards and car keys now. I'm not advocating for implants, I just don't see it as all that scary.

    Its almost a maxim that any power that CAN be abused WILL be abused. If not by its implementers then by those who come after, often drawn toward the power itself.

    An ex DARPA director and Google exec want to start putting implants into people, good idea? You might not be able to draw money or grocery shop without authentication and identification.

    I think we all could see this coming with technology and gov't control increasing. Is it time to Microchip the human race? Though, I can already see the hackers finding ways of changing the identities. Where there's a lock, there's always a thief.

    Credit used to be entirely voluntary, but now your credit score can keep you from getting a job, renting a house, etc.

    I've wondered if it is possible to have a credit score of 666. Or does the calculation software round up or down to avoid it.

    Had to look that up didn't you?

    I'm more annoyed by how someone like Google tracks your buying habits to encourage more sales. I looked up a laptop the other day, just to see what's available and the cost, if my PC died. All of a sudden every page I pull up has laptops being advertised on them. I don't want Google to cram their crap down my throat, like I'm a sheep.

    People don't know that the NSA can change bank account amounts. I don't trust the NSA, DARPA and Google with my ID and personal info but it's too late. They'll figure a way to tag us without our knowledge, eventually.

    The danger of technology like this isn't that the government will make it mandatory. The danger is that, once out, WE will start the process of building our society around it and at some point convenience will become dependance. Once that point is reached it won't matter if government made it mandatory because people who choose not to have it will be shut out and marginalized. Eventually they'll even become outcasts.
