Update : The Hacker News works tirelessly to bring credible and informative information to the public in regards to cyber security and issues surrounding it. We obviously did not understand the true nature of the “chip” and stand corrected on that issue. However, as strong supporters of the human right to privacy we collectively do not support any “gathering” of DNA or blood samples, etc for identification in future use. At least not on a mandatory basis. We apologize for any misinformation.
