I found out this week that the rfid card my employer uses to give out coffee is also a mifare classic card. Some searching on mifare related terms let me to Magna Carta and the name on the chipcard readers I see at work is also 'Magna Carta'. And another source told me that the touchatag reader can read mifare cards. I have played with touchatag tags before at the alcatel-lucent user conference.
I've been interested in rfid before, but the high cost of 'universal' (all rfid standards) readers were prohibitive. The touchatag is not a universal reader but gives me enough to begin with: For 30 euro I get a reader and some tags to play with, and the chance to read mifare cards such as the UU koffiekaart and the OV-chipkaart.So I ordered the touchatag starter pack.
Update 2010-12-01: Nothing received other than a credit card statement, so I inquired about the state of the order.
Update 2010-12-02: On the same day a reply that the package was sent 2010-11-19.. and a package. Airmail wasn't was fast as expected...
