TI and Credit Card Companies Shut Down Mythbusters

Mythbusters’ co-host Adam Savage recounts how Lawyers from Texas Instruments, American Express, Visa, and Discover killed a show about how hackable RFID is. Savage says that co-host Tori along with producer’s of the show connected to what they thought was a conference call with TI engineers about RFID only to discover that they were talking to a team of lawyers. Needless to say Discovery backed down and we won’t see the Mythbusters bust RFID.
