Re: Checking stock

Ooooh, sick burn! And spot on. RFID is a much heartier technology than the UPC label. I could just print up some sticky UPC labels and there's my vector; can I trick a sales droid into scanning a fake UPC label? For RFID, much harder to cover with a sticky label, even if it were RFID blocking in some small way.

And you can many times just stuff some product into another box and purchase THAT, and the droid be none the wiser. I needed a Kurieg coffee insert cone thing, and they don't sell them anywhere, so I just took one out of the display unit, switched it for the grey basket type, which they do sell but it makes a crap cup of anything, and I purchased that. Thanks for not having the right part, idiots. If you can't beat them, hack them.
