Wal-Mart and RFID. I didn't catch this, but apparently earlier this summer Wal-Mart announced that it will require it's top 100 suppliers to use RFID by 2005.

That alone will legitimize the RFID market. It's a move that makes sense for Wal-Mart, given their total focus on efficiency and cost-reduction. What's sad is that they'll probably miss the cool applications of RFID - like using it for marketing, innovation, and other things people value nonlinearly.
