Update: A Close Shave

 Further to my column about RFID, and the privacy issues of having tags attached to products that may contain more info about you than you’d like to know, a group called CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering) is calling for a worldwide boycott of Gillette products since the company failed to renounce what they call “a Gillette Mach3 “smart shelf” spy system”.
 
 
My two cents? I’m not sure a boycott is a good way to explore this issue, but if it helps get people talking, then so be it.
