Jason,

I saw these to, quite good actually isnt it.
I like the idea and concept, I just wonder how close you need to be with the other solution to record the card.

I believe that you actually need to get your hands on the card to record the data from it. I suppose that it might be theoretically possible to read it from a distance, I'll have to look into it.

if you can make that, that would become a digital blackhole. intercepting data within a given area and then save it on a portable harddrive.

Yup, this is yet another example of folks who don't understand the technology making decisions about it.

My new card has this so called feature. I understand why they think its a good idea, but you wont see me using it. I am safe though, I wrap myself in tinfoil when I go out.
