"IBM to have Card-Less ID system by September ( $ 6.6 Billion project )"
U.K. Pledges to Scrap Identity-Card Program Within 100 Days--- May 27, 2010 + 100 = September
[ Ed: for a much better one ..... my comments in italics ]
" International Business Machines Corp., ( USA )
Computer Sciences Corp. ( USA )
and Thales SA ( France )
" were awarded work for parts of the 4.6 billion-pound ($6.6 billion) project, a flagship policy of the previous Labour administration.
" Britain plans to scale back Falls Church, Virginia-based CSC’s 385 million-pound contract to deliver new systems.
[ Comment: They may be "scaled back" ( reconfigured ) but they still will be delivered ]
" IBM, based in Armonk, New York, will also see its 265 million pounds of work to store biometric information pared back. An agreement with Basingstoke, England-based De La Rue Plc to design passports will remain unchanged, Hall said.

"Positive ID with a fingerprint"
Note how they use the phrase " positive identification". Sounds so much like the implanted chip "PositiveID" ( Verichip ).
Accessing data banks with a fingerprint --June 7, 2010
"At the touch of the donor’s finger, the software tracks the OBI ( Oklahoma Blood Institute ) database to produce positive identification proof. This saves the time devoted for check-in process and also removes the possibilities of any human mistakes."
He further added that the ID solution features a fingerprint reader independence, which allows the users to perform verification, identification and enrollment processes through the fingerprint scanners, which are developed by major fingerprint reader makers. Systems such as workstation keyboards, cell phones, tablet PCs and laptops that are embedded with fingerprint readers can be utilized to determine the donor's identification, he added.
This system is able to automate the donors’ checking process and safeguards the identity of the donor to create sensitive identification forms like social security numbers and driver licenses.
By the mere touch of the finger of the donor, the software is able to search the data base of OBI for decreasing the check-in time, almost removing human errors, and provide * a positive ID * when the check-in process is on.
I am no persons cattle (person: a fictitious legal entity)
…and now, nothing more,
I want to be alone with my essential sea…
I don’t want to speak for a long time,
Silence! I want to learn,
I want to know if I exist.
