Step right up, Step right up, Come one Come all.
Welcome to CTIA, where only we can take a perfectly simple idea like open source 2d bar codes and turn it into a multi level money grabbing screwup.
Yes folks step right up to CTIA press extravaganza next week, where we will announce a system sure to confuse the market even more and introduce a closed highly licensed system from what was once a perfect idea already.
LAS VEGAS—NeuStar, the company behind the common short code registry, today unveiled the a successful demonstration and implementation of technology that enables cell phones and other mobile devices to scan and process two-dimensional bar codes – regardless of the mobile service provider, type of bar code symbology or scanning technology used.
“This is very exciting because what we’re announcing is barcode interoperability,” said Diane Strahan, vice president of Mobile Services at NeuStar. “We truly mean across all platforms and media.”
NeuStar says its pilot program is based on open standards and demonstrates interoperability among the world’s most successful bar code campaign managers, symbologies and code reader technologies through NeuStar’s third-party central clearinghouse and registry services.
CTIA, you can count on us, I mean look how badly we screwed up the common short code system (SMS CSC) here in the USA, of course we'll fuck this up as well.
(dont believe me go check out how the csc system in the UK is flourishing in comparison).
