+ - Should I worry about my employment contract?

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "I was preparing to accept a software developer job at a California company and was put off by the contract which claimed ownership of any ideas I create (on my own time or at the company) during my stay at the company and required me to inform them of any ideas (related to the company or not) during my employment and for a year afterwards. I found references to a couple instances where this became a legal problem for the developer. Is this something to worry about?"

WeAreTrackingYou writes "According to this AP Story scientist at Hitachi have built RFID tags that are the size of powder crystal i.e. 0.002 inches by 0.002. However the only problem is that these RFID tags need a external antenna. Next time you go to Mega Lo Mart you might get sprinkled with this pixie dust er powder-sized RFID tags so that they can serve (track) you better."
