Re: Technologies useful for Indian problems

The tag themselves are just tags, broadcast chips, they don't have themselves any capability to do any mechanical actions, maybe you need to check out smart sensors, like this, http://www.365agile.com/iot-smart-sensors/. What exact mechanical action are you triggering?

Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan-July 10,

All pakis were always very tense in the weeks preceeding a visit to Pakiland: they're afraid they'll be goatnapped, ransomed, contract some disease (brain eating amoeba I presume), or might not make it back alive in one piece. Then there is the fear that they might not be allowed back into massalan...

I don't believe all this, I think this is all fake drama/dramatised to show that Pakistan is victim of terror to get baksheesh from America. Why would Taliban attack Pakistan army school when Pakistan army themselves trained it and fund it. This is just Pakistani propaganda don't fall for it.
