If you are one of Omega Times US
subscribers then Speedpass should be of interest to you as it
appears to be only available in the States at this time. Thank
you to Graeme Pitt for bringing this interesting little product
to our attention.
The Speedpass comes in three
forms, a 1.5 inches (30 mm) long lightweight cylindrical object
that can be attached to your key ring, a small square device that
is fitted to the interior of your car’s rear window or
lastly in a watch.
Its operation is very simple
really. Once you sign up for Speedpass and you have received the
device of your choice you are free to make purchases at a number
of participating retailers nationwide.
The Speedpass is linked to a
credit or check account of your choice. You go to any one of the
participating retailers and pay for your purchases by waving the
Speedpass near a reader, the Speedpass communicates an
identification and security code by radio frequency and presto
your account is automatically debited.
Regrettably while running the risk
of being repetitious I must once again use that word
“gradually”. Worldwide there are many different
pockets of technology for buying and selling that are gradually
conditioning us to eventually accept the inevitable, an implant
into the right hand or forehead. Revelation 13:16-17 "And he
causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond,
to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And
that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the
name of the beast, or the number of his name."
Speedpass has with the usual
faults added ones, that is no signature or photo ID is required.
A canny criminal obtaining a key tag, watch or car with a
Speedpass attached is able to immediately purchase goods at
participating retailers without having to produce any form of
identification up until such time as the theft is discovered and
the Speedpass inactivated. As mentioned in previous articles this
type of technology can be lost, stolen, and hacked into. Not
until the implants for buying and selling are ordered placed in
the hand or forehead will identity theft be prevented, as you
will agree it will be difficult to present someone else’s
head or hand when buying your groceries.
Of interest is the concept of the
Speedpass being in a watch. Obviously a watch is worn on one hand
or the other and gets consumers used to the idea of running
either hand under the reader, we know through the word of God
that the right hand will be the only one used. Of further
interest is the fact that the Speedpass devices contain
technology that does not require a power source, instead the
Speedpass is activated when in close proximity (1inch/20mm) to
the reader. The point being made; technology obviously exists
where it is possible (see www.digitalangel.net) for
implants to function in a biological body without having to worry
about regular battery changes. Regularly having surgery to change
a battery would get a little inconvenient after the novelty wore
