Submission + - Mythbuster's Adam Savage & TI Recant RFID Stor (cnet.com)

Nick writes: "A few weeks ago a video of a talk given by Adam Savage of the television show MythBusters spread across the internet (including a mention on Slashdot.) On the video Savage stated that the show was unable to produce s show about previously know RFID vulnerabilities due to a conference call to Texas Instruments that unexpectedly included credit card company's legal council.

TI (via a spokesperson talking with cnet.com) stated that only one lawyer was on the call and that the majority of the people on the call were product managers from the Smart Card Alliance (SCA) invited by TI to speak. Then Savage (via a Discovery Communications statement) reaffirmed that he was not on the call himself and that the decision was not made by Discovery or their advertising sales department but rather MythBuster's production company, Beyond Productions."
