RFID: Beware the Commodity Mentality

Bert Moore

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Add a screwdriver and you can be in real trouble.

You can buy RFID reader/encoders and tags online. There are USB readers you can plug into a wide range of mobile devices. There are kits that allow you to add tags to everyday household items. Even Dell Direct is offering a turnkey RFID IT asset tracking package. And thanks to the increasing number of international standards and interoperability, there's no longer a question of "will this stuff work?" it's a question of "what can I do with this stuff?"

It seems as if RFID is going main-stream and that it's really not all that hard to use RFID. In some respects that's true. In other respects, it couldn't be more wrong.
