RFID = Oyster cards in London. The thing we use to pay for our bus train tube and tram fares (yes I am from flippin Croydon). I have read articles about these things being hackable in theory. I have also seen stuff on the news about fake credit card factories (we had one of them in Croydon too ^^ ).
I thought everyone knew that all electronic swipe cards weren't 100% secure just like them key fob thingys, they have an alogorithm that in theroy can be hacked. And then there was the EU court that recently told some University that they couldn't publish their security-myth-busting report. I thought news about this crud being hackable was all over the Reg at least once a month. Oh wait this is this month's article isn't it?
Still I'd just liek to jump on the Mythbusters bandwagon and say how much I enjoy the show. But to be fair in the audience at the show where this was recorded someone did mention to Mr Savage that none of the audience were obliged to keep shtum.
Retraction or not, I don't like credit card companies or their lawers - the whole concept of 'credit' is just a way of screwing over people so you can charge exorbitent intrest rates. It's the culture of spend now pay later that has got the UK on the brink of recession. I say bollocks to the bankers; show them all up for the technically illiterate greedy little sh*tebags they are.
Oh and who's to say that the credit card lawyers didn't tell Discovery to tell Mr Savage to say that?
