Infowars Shopping Surveillance Article

Good writeup talking about the future/present of shopping and how we will all be tracked for sake of profit and predictive shopping/programming. “Shopper Management” is referred as the savior for corporations to know what and where to place products. RetailNEXT technology is discussed with security cameras, RFID, and joint venture with the government for biometric scanning of Americans and non-Americans. Europe has been monitoring their shoppers, although U.S. companies are hesitant to. Although they will surely follow suit since the article claims European companies are reporting a 20% increase in profit.

I must add a note of interest; I had a friend who lived in England for several years and back in the early 2000’s I spoke with him about their lifestyle and he spoke of how advanced their cell phone usage was. You did absolutely everything on the cell phone; e.g. check bank usage, pay for pizza to be delivered, etc. Perhaps they’ve used cell phone technology to monitor their users longer than we have.
