Wal-Mart continues RFID push, despite doubts about supplier benefits

Walmart is announcing an addition of 500 more stores that are RFID enabled, and it is mandating 300 more suppliers to comply with its RFID requirements.

Line56 has more on Wal-mart's RFID program.

In the meantime, I've been getting some feedback from Spectator readers in response to my request for real-world experiences with RFID. The bottom-line? RFID adoption in fact is slowing and even stalling in the face of technical problems and questionable payback.

RFID vendors and service providers may not be publicizing this, but that's what they're telling me off the record.

If you've got more feedback, please send me a message.
