Now this doesn’t sound like a good idea

the story over at Wired covers the news that american passports are going to get RFID chips…
As is mentioned in the story I don’t really understand why they don’t just use chips that require contact, thus reducing the risks that the chips is read by unauthorised persons considerably…
Also I can see the sales of passport holders that block RFID signals going through the roof!! (hmm wonder if I could patent that sharpish ;op)
