QR Codes Get Major Press Coverage
Target: Customers on the Go: ‘Quick response’ codes aim to take advantage of the boom in smartphones
About eight months ago, the three-store chain started putting these “quick response” codes in its train ads. When customers scan the little squares with their smartphone cameras, a coffee menu pops up on their screens. Then they can order a cup of coffee on the train—and have it waiting when they arrive at one of Ethical Bean’s shops.
Business has doubled since then, says Chief Executive Lloyd Bernhardt. “We catch people who are on the go and don’t have a lot of time,” he says.
With smartphone use soaring, many small companies are turning to these quick-response, or QR, codes to connect with customers on the go. They’re placing the codes in ads, direct mail, in-store displays and product packaging, and using them to link to a host of features—discounts, websites and videos. And, like Ethical Bean, many companies say they’ve seen a big sales boost.
I’ve been showing QR Codes I’ve found in the real world.
Ohhhhkay. Now we are getting into a real digital divide here.
Job applicants who can afford “app resumes” and those who can’t.

QR Code On A Kobo Reader
Well, this is unusual. I’m wondering now if a sticker like that is actually a good idea. It can link to owner information on the Net if it gets lost.
