Hi Dave, Thanks for the report. You asked: >> How'd the meeting go last week? << Well, Rachel and I were there! I guess the proximity to the Holiday weekend was a turn-off. It couldn't have been a lack of interest in MEDC, could it? Oh well. I can give a very quick rundown at the next meeting. I do have a great link to an Engineer's view of RFID (my title for the article). Go to Tag It! at: http://www.elecdesign.com/Articles/Index.cfm?AD=1&ArticleID=10270<http://www.elecdesign.com/Articles/Index.cfm?AD=1&ArticleID=10270> I also made contact with WDI in Canada (www.wdi.ca<http://www.wdi.ca/>) who have some very interesting RFID reader/writers that use SDIO on a Pocket PC platform (probably Windows Mobile Smartphone, too). I hope to get a developer kit soon so that I can show it off.
