Random RFID Update: RFID to merge with cell phones

Nokia has a prototype phone that is RFID-enabled.

Selected quote:

RFID's addition to Nokia phones is inevitable, according to some industry veterans. During the past few years, cell phones have been tricked out with any number of different wireless antennas--global positioning systems, Wi-Fi, infrared, Bluetooth and soon ultra wideband--in order to increase the phone's usefulness.

Chipping people with RFID is one of my favorite topics, largely because of my not-so-secret desire to become a cyborg. Of course, who needs to chip people if they allow themselves to be tracked by their GPS and RFID enabled cell phones?
