  • Microchips get under the skin of technophile Swedes

    Stockholm (AFP) - It's the size of a grain of rice but could hold the key to many aspects of your life.

    A tiny microchip inserted under the skin can replace the need to carry keys, credit cards and train tickets.

    That might sound like an Orwellian nightmare to some but in Sweden it is a welcome reality for a growing number who favours convenience over concerns of potential personal data violations.

    Two things...

    One I was surprised that it said she had to still manually type in a code after the chip is is that easier than opening with a key???

    Two...bad things happen when you have foreign objects in your sister almost died because of a titanium mesh placed in her abdomen...and just heard yesterday about massive lawsuit related to placement of some type of a mesh in women in the lower abdomen to help support organs...immune reaction indeed!!!
