If you enhance your workout with the new Nike+ iPod Sport Kit, your privacy might be in danger. The RFID tags in the shoes emit a signal that markets could use to track your every movement! Big brother is in your shoes...

Implications - It's definitely alarming to see that such a glaring security oversight could be included in a product's design without the consumer being aware or informed of it. Hopefully, the public outcry that results from this revelation will be enough to make Nike seriously reconsider the vetting process that they puts their products through before releasing them. No one should have to compromise their security or privacy while exercising.
