Big Brother is Watching You Get Dressed

Quick, take off your clothes!

According to privacy activists, your favorite jeans may actually be secret agents, tracking your every move.  Levi's has apparently been testing controversial radio frequency identification (RFID) technology on hangtags "on a few of our larger-volume core men's Levi's jeans styles" at at least one U.S. retail location.  RFID has broad potential for monitoring inventory, ascertaining authenticity, and many other things.  The problem is that it also has the potential to track an unsuspecting consumer's every move. 

Who knew that naturists would one day enjoy more privacy than the rest of us?
