Dr. Katherine Albrecht, co-author of the best-selling book 'SPYCHIPS How Major Corporations Plan to Track your Every Move with RFID' and director of CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering) has a daily radio show on GCN. She holds a Doctorate in Education from Harvard University with a research focus in consumer education, privacy and psychology.
During her broadcast, Dr. Albrecht reveals that the Barcelona club has since gone out of business, and the Amsterdam bar stopped chipping customers some time ago and rarely uses the system at all, according to the chipped spokesman Albrecht interviewed. The RFID card reader at the club didn't have batteries, was covered in dirty scotch tape and the 'exclusive lounge area' for RFID chipped patrons consisted of an empty area in a corner upstairs with 2 tables surrounded by a rope.

Businesswire article reporting on checkpoint systems press release http://www.forbes.com/businesswire/feeds/businesswire/2008/06/19/businesswire20080619005080r1.html
Checkpoint Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CKP), a leading manufacturer and marketer of identification, tracking, security and merchandising solutions for the retail industry and its supply chain, today announced that a number of major retailers are now piloting its Evolve state-of-the-art shrink management technology, which was introduced earlier this year.
Retailers now utilizing the Evolve products include Anchor Blue, Babies R Us, CVS, LensCrafters, Kohl's, Toys R Us, Vans and Wilsons.
Evolve is Checkpoint's next-generation suite of electronic article surveillance (EAS) products. Evolve solutions provide retailers with a highly-scalable EAS system that helps reduce shrink, boost profitability and improve the customer shopping experience. In tandem with RFID technology, Evolve can also increase inventory visibility and accuracy through its in-store tracking capabilities.
Featuring improved Radio Frequency (RF) tag detection, Smart Alarm Management (SAM) to improve system integrity, and a Software Defined Radio (SDR) that can support multiple EAS and RFID tag frequencies, Evolve significantly improves the performance of traditional EAS technologies and provides retailers with a migration path for RFID adoption.
