Letters To The Editor

Don't Look To Politicians
Why should the candidates offer any suggestions about tech vision ("Offer Tech Vision, Not Campaign Rhetoric," July 19, p. 64)? Isn't that the job of engineers, scientists, and business managers? None of the candidates is a technology expert. All their rhetoric is just populist nonsense.

All elected officials can do to help technology is to have tax policies that are favorable toward all industry.

John Hemmer
Syracuse, N.Y.


RFID Alert
Who's going to alert the public on the use of radio-frequency ID tags and what the advantages or disadvantages are ("Microsoft Adding RFID Support To Windows Server Software," July 13)? The more people are aware of how they might be affected by RFID tags, the more they might accept their use.

Lewis Slagle
Sacramento, Calif.


Short Memory
How quickly we forget ("In Search Of The Perfect Gadget," July 5). We forget when there was no E-mail, no notebooks, no Internet. All these things have become so ingrained, and we take them for granted. We forget what it was like to run version 1.0 of anything, and then, when we close our eyes, we remember when these applications crashed. We forget rebuilding databases and all the little things that are automatic today.

Sometimes we have to take a step back and see how far we've come to get a better perspective on where we were and where we're going.

Alan Prefer
Senior VP, Atec Group, New York
