So far, it's optional.

Chip implants are not for me. You don't get to implant a foreign object in my body just because you employ me. Will chipped employees be treated better? "All employees are equal... but some are more equal than others." How long before it becomes a condition of employment instead of optional?

I have mixed feelings. I don't necessarily want to get one from my employer, but I sure would like something like that that could eliminate the need to carry a wallet. Seems like the potential to reduce fraud and identity theft MIGHT be reduced as well. I realize that this is a polarizing topic.

It's more convenient than carrying an ID card with a chip in it but it's an infection hazard. I've known people who made their own RFID chips and implanted in themselves to show that they could do it.

Many laugh at this, but it's coming. Of course, at first it will be sold to the public as a convenience piece, but the hints of forced implants are already here.

Would the employer take on the liability for this?

I mean, my kids generation have so many allergies that is not even funny, when you don't know what they may react or get triggered by it....

There's convenience, sure, but what happens when this interface becomes obsolete in like two years?

Don't worry, we will have one microchip to rule them all.

I thought some of the "touch"/rfid credit cards have been targets because the thiefs had the capability to copy and replicate the rfid data....

Our military has been talking about chipping the troops for several years now but hasn't done it. It's only a matter of time, and it will be mandatory just like the anthrax vaccination was initially. If you refuse it, you will be booted out.

If this will be the new cashflow cow/ savoir du jour,

tech companies doing chips will appear out of nowhere in a jiffy.

I think everybody will try to push their own standard....

Wait until someone finds a way to hack the chip. Then they can get into whatever you use it for. Work access, bank info, start your car, whatever. If the chip is in one of your fingers, you might just have to touch something to transfer data without even knowing it.
