RFID Read Ranges Advance

Evan Schuman posts more on the read range of Gen2 RFID tags. As I have mentioned before, the read range of tags has been a key component of how private the use of such tags on items or take home 'cases' can be. Early on, when I gave talks about the technology, tags that were proposed for public use were rated in the few cm range, this was then extended to ten feet and improvements in readers now seem to have extended this to up to forty feet. Read the linked-to piecs in Evan's post above for more details. A very big deal. I also note that the Spychips watchdog site and its blog are now rarely updated.
