Well...this isn't good for people implanted with medical devices. Get into the wrong hands, this could be bad news.

The next injection of course is a Fresh installation of Malware Bytes to take care of the virus.

Ok that is just freaking awesome. I want to be injected with the I Love You virus or even the classic Michelangelo virus from back in the day. Michelangelo virus only affected your computer on March 6 of each year. So if you weren't sure if your computer was clean all you had to do was change the date in your bios to March 7 on March 5 before midnight.

Go read the Night's Dawn Trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton, and you would be hard pressed not to be worried about implanting a computer/chip/device in your eye/body/head.  It is also an excellent series.

Perhaps the best way to make sure that some jerk doesn't hack your pacemaker is to pass on the 'total connectivity package' that comes as an optional add-on.  If you just can't stand to not be able to adjust your new heartbeat 'conviently, anytime, anyplace, through any WIFI connection!', then perhaps you will have to deal with the sickos who will inevitably make a virus to hack your spanking-new implantable device.

Good rule to live by: Don't be stupid.

I don't understand this. All he did was prove a chip can transit a signal thru skin. Well duh, how is this something new?

What if that chip controls the beating of your heart, or any other number of medical functions, in the future? Bio-terrorism is the point.

To implant your self with a chip is to give up your freedom.
