The big buzz this year, no surprise, was about RFID. Since much of the current activity has been focused on logistics—a clear winner as a starting point—we are missing the dialogue on the consumer side of the retail equation—merchandising, and most important, the customer experience. I was pleased to be

MARKET RESEARCH FIRMS: of gadgets and computers. Market Impact This announcement gives the Palm OS even more legitimacy/cachet than it already has.
