Wait--What Happened to the Big RFID Mandate?

RFID has been on a bit of a roller coaster ride. It started with a bang a few years ago, when Wal-Mart and the Department of Defense issued their edicts that all suppliers would need to get on the RFID bandwagon within a set time frame. Well, that deadline has come and gone, and uptake has fallen well short of the mark. In fact, of the close to 150 Wal-Mart distribution centers, the number of RFID-enabled facilities can be counted on one hand.
