    I'd rather just get used to remembering my keys, thanks.

    That's classic!

    It reinforces my feelings about the whole idea.

    mmmm I don't think I would. Anybody could 'clone' my wireless signal without me even knowing. However, as ignorant as I am, they'd struggle to snatch keys out of my pocket (tight jeans, stops pick-pocketing, something I've been a victim of), so I think I'd stick with the keys.

    However if it could be used for a recreational purpose, then I think it would be kinda cool. You could program in say, your musical taste, and have it alert you when you walk near somebody who shares the same taste as you...

    So wait, if someone wants to steal my car, they have to hack my hands off first?

    yes.....
    sweeeet....

    I can see the news report. "Today two "armed" robbers stole a car."

    It's not the implant that scares me, its the being tracked and somebody with a RFID scanner getting accesses to all my stuff

    Personally I'd love to just have a chip in me that deals with the hassle of locks and such and could theoretically do more than that. However, unless I was 100% sure that it couldn't be hacked or traced or some such thing, there's no way I'd get one.

    If there aren't health problems and the cost was minimal for the procedure then sure, i'd consider it. I do fine right now but it would be quite neat t o have a chip in your hand so you could just waive it and unlock a door :rolleyes:

    So you'll never get one since no one will ever develop a computer that cannot be hacked or traced somehow. I would not get one either.

    I bet you're relieved. :) It could be worse though: the sort of things that i handle in syringes at work do a lot worse than set off store beepers, so i aim to stay away from the 'stupid thing' category if i can. :eek:

    Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

    Funny, but true, I 'spose. We're all going to be cyborgs before we die. Or we just like, won't die. Which will be unfortunate.

    Went on the "Borg Invasion 4D!" ride while I was in Vegas. Fun, though somewhat ... painful.
