    This just seems creepy…. having something injected into my body so that I don’t have to carry a keys or put in a password. What if the employee leaves the company – yes you can deactivate, but the transmitter is still in the (now ex) employees body. If that employee leaves and goes to another company that also injects a tracking device and then leaves and goes to yet another, will all of the tracking devices now interfer with each other?

    way creepy, no thank you, I’ll just use my password, card, etc. seems like this could lead to all kinds of misuse, such as tracking people without consent, etc. just say no…

    I find it incredible that people would even consider consenting to this. Implications far beyond what’s noted in this article. Agree with futureworld: just say no!

    Sure has the markings of the beginning of “Logan’s Run” . First they market it as convenience to us, but in the end it could be a way for them to tag and track us. In my mind, now way are you injecting any devise or probe into me.

      “Oh, you were sick yesterday? How come you weren’t at home in bed and instead were walking 15 miles around the closest major city to your home?”
