Without a Mandate

What if Wal-Mart hadn't mandated RFID? Would companies be persuing the technology? Stores.org says no:

During a roundtable discussion of RFID at AMR Research’s Spring Conference, analysts took an informal poll of the 40 participants seated around the table. The assemblage, representing a cross section of retailers, CPG players and high-tech electronics manufacturers, was asked to indicate if their companies would be exploring RFID were it not for the Wal-Mart mandate.

Only three of the 40 people raised their hands.
