Is this a joke??
I've just read through the pdf, and OMG, I've never read such a load of bollocks in my whole life.
I fear the day that the phone companies invade our lives to the point that we all have a bit of technology stuck on our fucking coat so that people can tell if you're bored or not without having to look at your face.
Also, ooh, look here!
"Some mobile phones already have near-filed
communication chips (NFCs) built into them, allowing
you to pay for your coffee by waving your phone close
to a sensor. In 2050, you could have one of these chips
under your skin, making it an in-built festival pass, debit
card, ID card and even a phone, all in one. "
Yes! We'll all just be micro chipped! I'm not fucking making it up, it's on page 7! How did you miss that!
This HAS to be a spoof!
Someone tell me it's just a clever joke, oh please.
Words have actually failed me.......
