Google announced this week they are going to be sending out 20,000 QR code 'decals' to businesses across the USA this week.
Basically the URL embedded on the QR code is going to redirect to a proprietary google website.
I swear some people are as dumb as a stack of bricks.
Yes QR codes are a good idea, yes they should be more widely adopted, but go create your own free QR code leading to your own website instead of sending people to a proprietary website that google will want to start charging you for in a few years.
BTW in case you've been living under a rock and dont know what QR codes are about feel free to check out www.Cognation.net/QR for a "60 second Overview" to bring you up to speed.
