lewismarktwo: ISO15693: My library card has a barcode on it - but I recently discovered my grocery store uses barcode scanners! - just what are they doing with this information? And why does the grocery store want to know my reading habits? SECRET GOVERNMENT INTELLIGENCE PROGRAMS!/roll eyes^There's always these people. You just can't accept the fact that these things matter, so you make light of them.
ISO15693: There are countless RFID systems using the UHF band around 900Mhz. You can buy UHF band detectors very cheaply, walk around any modern city or mall, and see for yourself. His detector would certainly "Moo" if he drove down my street, within 300 feet or so of my home office, yet it would have absolutely nothing to do with any of the fear-mongering claims he is making, absolutely nothing to do with EZ-pass- it would just be my own UHF rfid projects or possibly the local grocery store (many of those use UHF inventory control systems)If I am "one of those guys", its only because this is my profession, and I make my living by being an expert in RFID systems. (ISO15693 is an RFID protocol in the HF 13.56 Mhz range, but I have been focused on long range UHF ~900 mhz rfid for the past 3 years, such as what the EZ-pass system uses)This guy is very, very, silly. It's silliness crafted to generate fear and,,, wait a sec
Satanic panic in the attic: Just get it over with already and microchip us all.
LeroyB: My EZ Pass is wrapped up in it's metallic bag in the storage compartment of the center console.
freak7: What I'd like to see them do is use EZ Pass to issue speeding tickets.
Suckmaster Burstingfoam: I don't see what the problem is.If you're not doing anything wrong, why have a problem with being tracked everywhere you go?

Hermione_Granger: Ivo Shandor: It doesn't really matter any more. License plate readers are good enough that you don't need dedicated RF transmitters.I was thinking about this today. If had a decent enough high res photo of my license plate and put it beneath a holder - I think if it looked realistic enough, it could stand up to a visual test and beat the scanners because it would just be photo paper?Just a theory....I'm willing to entertain all rejections as to why this wouldn't work.

Man On Pink Corner: Could just as easily use TPMS. Google it: you have radios in your tires.

Enemabag Jones: I have read suggestions that RFID tags be put on license plates. Maybe you know something I don't but I won't take your word on it.
Creoena: Anyone who thinks the government and corporations are not spying on your every move is a fool./Nothing to see here//Move along
