Hello Friends and CASPIAN Members:
Katherine Albrecht here, with a live radio update today and urgent news about Macy’s department stores. The $25 billion retailer has announced it will attach RFID (radio-frequency) tracking technology to 300,000 pairs of shoes, starting next month. Their exact words are:
“We believe now is the right time to roll out RFID aggressively.” – Macy’s (source)
What?!? There is never a good time to roll out privacy-invading Spychips. Macy’s has promised to respond to consumer concern about its RFID plans in a statement by 5:00 PM today. I will share their response with you on my life radio program today.
Please tune in to my radio show from 4:00-6:00 PM Eastern for this breaking story, and to formulate our response. You can listen here:

Millions of radio listeners learned of Macy’s plans to sell chipped shoes during my interview last night on Coast to Coast AM. Now let’s give Macy’s every chance to do the right thing and set a positive example for the rest of the retail industry.
Macy’s, we’re counting on you!
