Teens want to be chipped to pay for stuff?

The Daily Mail is reporting on a survey that says 8% of 13 to 19 year-olds want to pay for stuff using a chip implant (Young shoppers want to pay with chip in skin the Daily Mail). Before you read too much into that stat, I have a hunch that roughly the same portion of teenagers still believe in the Easter Bunny.

Wow, 8%. That means 92% don’t want to pay with implanted microchips. Of course, a headline like “Eleven-twelfths of teens don’t want anything to do with becoming digitally-enhanced consumer cyborgs” doesn’t sell papers.
