The FDA has approved a pill that will transmit information on patient compliance to doctors and others concerned about treatment regimens. It integrates with a smartphone app.

While I can see benefits, I can also see horrendous abuses emerging from this sort of technology as patients are forced to "consent" for treatment, medico-legal, insurance, educational, and employment purposes.

Well that is something I will not need to worry about. I cannot swallow pills whole. I have to chew them or crush them. Let's just say that penicillin tastes absolutely awful, and you need some really strong flavours to mask it (mixing it with strawberry jam and rolling it into cheese and then eating pringles salt and vinegar chips (which they don't sell here anymore) is NOT enough...
