The Holidays Are Coming

Don't forget the barcode nerdlets this year.

Waiting Impatiently for HCCB

I was promised an amazing technicolor dreamcoat, man.

I am shocked, shocked I tell you, that something from our Redmond neighbor would be slow to roll.

Will RFID Replace Beloved Old PDF417?

Has PDF417 been supplanted by RFID?

Barcode rings, barcode jewelry

If I did wear jewelry, I might be tempted to wear a barcode ring.

As it is, all I can deal with is a dogtag with a Buddhist mantra on it.

Barcode CD rack

Oh Santa... I've been a pretty good boy so far this year. Haven't gotten caught doing anything terribly bad. So here's something you might instruct the elves to build for me this year: a barcode CD rack.

RFID implants in one's worker bees

As an employer part of me thinks that California's ban on mandatory RFID implants in workers limits my ability to monitor and manage my staff members.

Then I remember, "Oh yeah. I believe in personal freedom and the right to privacy." Compounded by the fact that Azalea Software supports the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

What a toss up. Draconian management techniques with a hint of sci-fi evil or preserving personal liberties and fighting techno-totalitarianism. Heads or tails, call it in the air.
