Funny. RFID has done infinitely more to advance our lives than has any Apple product, and yet I've never heard of the man. Funny how the world works, eh?

It's always the case, depends on what's in the media's spotlight really that dictates what most of us know. I know about him because of college/university and learning about RFID fundamentals.

I really hope if they bury him, that they tag his body. If anyone had any way of detecting it, it would be a neat little way of keeping him "alive" so to speak.
