i came across this article... ok ok fine who am i kidding i was researching for a possible chip in my U.S PASSPORT. :-[ well... i found out that its true.
The RFID chips contain a tiny bit of information that is transmitted via radio when the chip comes within range of a reading device. The chip could broadcast a simple code number, or it could contain a lot more information, like a traveler's name, nationality and digital photograph. This is what the chips planned for future U.S. passports will do, part of a plan to make the passport system more secure.
