RFID to the rescue

I'll be adding this USA Today piece on the future of RFID to my ever-expanding file of techno-hype-from-MIT that begs for rhetorical analysis. The vision of domestic bliss described here is the Jetsons minus Rosie the maid-bot and gender-weirdness.

In other areas, recent MIT grad Stephen Ho has developed what he calls "location-relaxed storage":

"Basically it means that instead of organizing a warehouse by putting items in their carefully defined proper places, RFID will make it more efficient to just throw everything everywhere. It's the total chaos warehouse."

At least that's kinda funny. (via)
