Comments from the Editor
RFID was all the rage in 2004 until about 2006. With Wal-Mart pushing, RFID was constantly making headlines. Even Microsoft jumped deeply into RFID. In the 2005 TechEd Microsoft unwrapped their RFID infrastructure built on SQL Server and .NET. It is now 2008 and the buzz on RFID seems to have all but disappeared. Even Google Trends shows a downward slop for RFID
I asked Sudhir Hasbe of Microsoft a few questions regarding RFID. Check out his answers in the short Q&A that I've posted to Codeguru here.
Until next week...
