TheStreet: Wal-Mart item-level tagging doesn’t represent an invasion of privacy – or does it?

I’m a firm believer that privacy concerns about RFID are fading as the benefits of the technology become more apparent to consumers. While there is still a ways to go on that subject, a recent poll by TheStreet suggests that consumers are not concerned about privacy invasions from RFID – although only by a small majority. In the poll, 53.3 percent of respondents said they do not consider RFID tags a breach of privacy, while 46.7 percent believe their rights could potentially be violated.

The publication doesn’t reveal any information on margins of error, but you’ve got to believe that the poll isn’t far off from a 50-50 split on the topic, which suggests further education is needed when it comes to privacy. Regarding the Street poll, first I’d like to know why the poll results were buried in the last paragraph. Secondly, I’d like to know how many people TheStreet surveyed, and how familiar they are with the technology.
