Bar Codes

September 12, 2010

My new phone (see this post to hear me squee about it) allowed me to download a bar code reader.  How about that?  Why would I want to go to the supermarket and read bar codes?

Well, for one, the app will let me comparison shop.  But more importantly (or at least more coolly), messages can be written in bar codes and translated by my (and a lot of other people’s) phone.

In the spirit of this cool but entirely unnecessary development, this blog now has a bar code.  It’s that weird square-looking picture at the top of this post.  It will be permenantly displayed in the widget bar on the right of the page.  I’ll also consider adding it to my business cards–if I ever get some business cards–and any advertisements I do.  It’s not the standard bar code like I was used to; this is a 2-dimensional barcode of the QR variety (there are apparently several, like VHS and BetaMax…did I just date myself?)

Got a mobile phone with a bar code reader?  Try it.  Then you can take me everywhere you go!  Wait…do I want that?
