Dear Klaus Rudolph,
Our morning newspaper has carried an article about the German
supermarket Metro AG that is testing a wireless system.
"Grocery shopping may never be the same" from teh
Santa Barbara News
Press May 3, 2003 (Associated Press).
"The heavy use of wireless equipment, in combination
technology such as bar codes, is an attempt to find out what
costs and attract customers over the next 5 to 10 years."
"We are just at the beginning of the technological modernization
retailing," says Metro CEO Hans-Joachim Koerber.
"Perhaps the key feature at Metro AG is smart tags,
or RFID chips -
short for radiofrequency identification - that broadcast data
several feet - enabling receiver-equipped smart shelves or
scanners to track what's in the store."

power line tech. may delay building new lines
A new technological development may delay for many years
the need to
build new transmission power lines.
3M is supporting the advanced testing of its new Aluminum
Composite Reinforced (ACCR) conductor. The new conductor uses
a core of
aluminum-matrix-composite wires surrounded by temperature-resistant
aluminum-zirconium wires. According to officials at the Department
Energy, the composite core is stronger than steel, but doesn't
as do conventional cores.
The new conductor, which has been under development for many
carries up to 3 times as much current as conventional steel
of the same size.
Accordingly, it is likely most of the need for new transmission
can be met merely by replacing existing conductors with the
conductor. Therefore, it will no longer be necessary to build
transmission lines, and it should now be possible to remove
existing lines that have undue environmental or human impacts.
Much testing are underway. The National Transmission Technology
Research Center in Oak Ridge,TN is testing the new conductor.
Tennessee Valley Authority has strung a test line near Oak

Administration has just begun a year-long test of a one mile,
