    Yes, the term RFID is nearly synonymous with the Privacy debate right now - so much so that the acronym is often replaced with less sinister sounding terms (Smart Tags for example).

    While it is important to be aware of these issues, it is also important to remember that once people become accustomed to a system, most are willing to exchange a degree of privacy for enough benefit (Air miles, Credit Cards...ever read the fine print?)

    So the challenge becomes one of determining how much benefit this new technology can provide.
