RSS Barcodes

Just when you thought there was enough acronyms in the world already, supply chain standards body GS1 has announced the introduction of a new barcode system called - wait for it - RSS. The barcodes are smaller than existing barcodes and can store more information.

The RSS stands for Reduced Space Symbology, not Rich Site Summary or Real Simple Syndication (which one is it supposed to be anyway..??). Just another acronym to cause confusion, or as these people would probably like it to be - JAATCC.. Or would it be JA2TC2? :P
