Oh I can read.

Its a brain dead author writing a brain dead vision of what he thinks the costs would be ...

And its not the costs of the wifi link, but also the cost of the software, the cost of additional insurance, the cost of further testing the product to get UL certification... do you really want me to add in all of the costs associated with designing and then producing and testing a new model?

Not to mention the costs associated with marketing and then the uplift to make the product more desirable....

And then... the cost associated of going to the clothing industry to get them to use the new tag that you want which is redundant information in the existing tag.

Do you start to see why this idea is DOA?
