Recall I am one of those silly wackos with zeeerooo 
concern about loss of privacy.  No wait, that is an under-
statement, I *want* to lose privacy.  I want to register
with the local merchant, place RFID in my clothing,
have their computer detect my entrance, make an
educated guess as to what I want based on my purchasing
pattern, have their computer screen greet me and tell me about
any sales on those and related items and which isle to find 
the stuff thats on sale.  I want them to share that info
with other stores of the same chain too, in fact that is
where it would be most useful: I already know where the
stuff is in my own Orchard Supply Hardware and Fry's 
Electronics.  I want them to send my purchase history 
info over to the OSH and Fry's in Palo Alto, Sunnyvale 
and Santa Clara.  If I accidentally pick up some DVD+
disks, I want a note to come up at the cash register:
"SPIKE! You have DVD MINUS!  These wont work..."  

If anyone ever steals my credit card and tries to use 
it, I want a flag to go up at the register: 
"Cashier, the owner of this credit card always has three or
four RFIDs on his person.  We detect none on this customer.  
Is he naked?  If not, is he six feet tall, blonde,
125 pounds?  If not, it's bogus or stolen card. 
Call security immediately..."
