ON THE CLAIRE FILES MESSAGE BOARD, there's been much discussion on defeating various intrusive technologies like RFID. A recent news story about the failure of a voice-recognition system inspires more hope along these lines.

Debra here. Seems that the voice recognition system installed by the Shreveport, LA Sherriff's department is having trouble recognizing those sweet-as-smoked-honey southern drawls.

Granted this isn't a voice identification system, but combined with the spectacular failure of Snooper-Bowl XXXV, you gotta wonder just how accurate those "foolproof" biometrics really are.
