Wal-Mart Stores has unexpectedly canceled testing for an experimental wireless inventory control system, ending one of the first and most closely
watched efforts to bring controversial radio frequency identification technology to store shelves in the United States.
hehe, what they really didn't say clearly is the real reasons why.
Methinks they had a few people doing research on this via the internet forums, gathering feelings and opinions, and realized just exactly what
people really thought about this proposed "wireless inventory control system".
Probably came here first and saw what was written up!
*happydance* woo! I knew they'd have to drop the whole thing. Benetton tried the same thing not so long ago, and they had to drop it because of
public opinion, too. I'm very glad this got shot down. I really dont' want WalMart of all places (not that I shop there...well, except for some
stuff that I can't get anyplace else) knowing exactly what I buy and what I do with it. I mean, if I buy underwear there, when I wear it and where I
go with it is my business!
