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:
