"one thing may soon make the Jacobses stand out: They could become the
first family in the world to be implanted with microchips that contain
their personal information."
Silly rabbit, chips are for kids.
I can imagine some backward government minister or an company exec soon
saying "why don't these people want RFID Chips implants inside them,
they've got nothing to hide have they?"

>> You knew this was going to happen sooner or later. In what has been
>> classified as the first known instance of this practice in the U.S.,
>> CityWatcher.com has embedded RFID chips in two employees in order to
>> control access to a room where security video footage is held. The
>> company provides security cameras and digital video storage services
>> for government agencies and the police. The chips were implanted in
>> the upper right arms of the employees and then flashed in front of a
>> reader to gain access to the aforementioned room.
>> Of course, this practice will raise questions by some over the
>> rights of employees in the workplace as well as civil liberty
>> issues. However, when you're dealing with sensitive files of this
>> sort, where people face conviction of serious crimes, the thought of
>> protecting evidence and making sure only authorized people have
>> access to it may supersede the rights of a worker.
