    lonewolf and AIB, "they" will want to insert a chip in us sometime soon. No, not Matt Marriott here, though I do believe it is coming.

    To be, or not to be--that is the question:
    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outrageous technology
    Or to take arms against a sea of glitches
    And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep--
    No more--and by a sleep to say we end
    The heartache, and the thousand natural invasions of privacy
    That gadgets are heir to. 'Tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep--
    To sleep--perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub,
    For in that sleep of death what youtube videos may come
    When we have forsaken our cell phones and blackberries,
    Must give us pause.
    I sympathise. Especially when all the modern tech doesn't do what it's supposed to and makes life more complicated. A 21st century luddite? Sometimes I wanna run off and join an Amish community. As long as I can still watch the Zurich GP of course.

    Yep, Once I was confident I was in the Silent Majority. Nowadays it seems that more and more I am in the Ignored Minority.

    Me. After just one week, they'd be bored to tears and give up on the whole idea.

    They can use this to find Oh-u.. (and others) who aren't where they told the testers they are going to be.
