So, you're wondering about RFID you say? You've read things about its goods and bads, and supposed "facts". Well, I'd like to tell you the REAL story on RFID, not just a bunch of misinformed mumbo-jumbo. If you are one of the people spreading misinformation about RFID, please read along, and share with your friends what you find. But please know, that I am only stating not only FACTS, but also my own opinion on RFID. Everyone has their own thoughts, and i respect yours, so please respect mine.
Step 1: What is RFID?
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification Device. Its a small coil/chip that can come in packages from tags, to small circles, even down to an 8x12mm chip. RFID chips are identified and read by a reciever, which then does whatever it's supposed to do when it reads that particular chip. It would be like me handing you a piece of paper with a 16-digit number on it, and noone has that same number. Very similar to a social security card.
