Staples with Tracking Devices. by Jessica Hodges
Sounds scary right? Don’t worry, staples are still for paper. Swingline has come up with a new idea for staples with RFID (radio frequency identification tags.) So when you’re rummaging through giant stacks of paper looking for a report or wondering which trash can your colleague might have dumped it in you can track it down! Hallelujah.
This does seem like a great addition to any office. I think I would push for these a lot more than RFID employee badges. Thanks to Ubisense for creating those. As DVICE put it:
“Our malevolent overlords — er, bosses — can make sure we’re all where we’re supposed to be. Say, Jeff and Karen have been in that office supply closet for a long time… and why does Davis keep going to the bathroom?”
What’s even worse is that they can implement this system with our knowledge.
There was an older stapler from Peru
Who was dying from nothing to do
When along came a bum
Who with one swig of rum
Stapled some new cardboard shoes.
