George Orwell, Call Your Office

For a look at the powers Big Brother of the near future will have at his disposal, check out this scary subdermal GPS tracking thingamajig in development. How many years before all humans will be required (for our own good) to have these things implanted immediately after birth? Far-fetched? Well, let's just say I would much rather be a raving paranoid wacko than a prophet here. But you do have to ask yourself just what the hell the point of developing this technology really is.
