FTFA "Imagine, for example, a foreign government official is disliked by the US government - or just by the NSA. Or perhaps someone in the US posts something on the internet that the government really dislikes. Suddenly, that person is attacked by their toaster."

Don't stop reading there.

"The logical step beyond the glasses is apt to be something like augmented reality operating through contact lenses, followed after that by augmented reality operating through actual visual and auditory implants behind the eyes and ears, thereby creating real world 'augmented humans.'

Based on what I've read, Moore's Law is already tailing off, so whether or not some of these things could come to fruition, the article is based on an awfully basic (and disputable) premise.

In the future, each mobile phone will come with a little piece of C4 explosive, attached to the circuit board inside a microchip. When it is your time to go, all it will take is a simple phone call and the right DTMF code. If you are lucky, when that call comes in, somebody else will have borrowed your phone to make a call.

This is why I am a big fan of bluetooth headsets.

What's an "RT.com," and why can't it afford an editor?

I think headsets will come with tiny poisoned needles inside them that could be remotely activated just like the C4 in your phone. You need to think again.

No.  Fox News is privately owned and is editorially independent of the government.

It's their version of Voice of America.

I just realized that that came off a little more trolltastic than I'd intended.  Voice of America actually has editorial independence in ways that RT does not, and RT tends to do more infroming than even the most partisan US media outlets could ever aspire to.
