Thanks for that, Billy.
The only thing with RFID is that it will not stop theft or the forgetful transfer persons.
Not a lot of use, then, I would have thought. As surely these must be the two main reasons for "actual" missing equipment (rather than simply being misplaced ... in the back of the cupboard, etc.
If we are actually talking about deterring theft (and we must
use technology), perhaps we should be looking at the kind of systems shops use to set off alarm bells when someone walks out the door with an item s/he has "forgotten" to pay for!
