RFID Tag - They are going to be every where

Before the year is over I am sure you will have to deal with an RFID Tag somewhere. Either by going through an automatic paying toll to getting gas using a Mobil speedpass you will be using it or at least seeing it in action.

Maybe you are thinking about buying a new cell phone? There is speculation that they will be using RFID technology in the new cell phones sometime this year. Be wary of any cell phone that your boss gives you to use. They could be trying to figure out how you spend your day. They may even be tracking you entering the building or leaving it. Watch those smoking breaks you could be watched and never know it. Now I have your attention huh?

There are stories on the internet about more major companies using this type of RFID technology and let me just say they are stories. We can see companies that ship packages for a living using RFID tags to track packages. Actually it wouldn't surprise me if they were already using RFID tags. We know that companies

  • Wal-mart
  • Circuit City
  • Gillette
  • Proctor & Gamble
  • Kimberly-Clark
  • Tesco (UK)
  • Metro (Germany)

Are using RFID Tags already as a way to track pallets and in other ways.

There are two types of tags Active and Passive you can read all about the differences in the two on our articles page.
