Here's another example of the bad use of good technology. Katie Dean reports in Wired that when you buy your favorite DVD at the store, you will be required to have your fingerprint data written to an RFID tag on the DVD, so that before your player will play the DVD, you have to give your finger to the player, so it will verify that you are the person who bought the DVD before it will play.

Not only is this bad, it is dumb.
