RFIDs Wrap Up
RFIDs represent a great potential boon to many segments of industry, from manufacturing to shipping to retail. They could change the way we interact with the products we buy and the merchants we purchase them from. RFIDs have the potential to make transactions run smoothly and efficiently, and to allow retailers to gain information about our purchases and habits to better serve our wants and needs.
But like any new technology, the potential for convenience comes with the potential for abuse. Privacy concerns with RFIDs need to be taken seriously and must be addressed as the technology moves forward.
Although the principals behind the technology are not new, innovative uses for the technology are being developed every day. It's fair to say that RFID technology is here to stay.
