  1. yep this has been out for a few week s now, only wish it was configured to encode more than just url’s

    until then it’s really just a neat trick.

    i keep wondering what google is really up when it comes to qr codes.

    if they wanted to make this happen they could roll out really effective tools with less than a few hundred developer hours (so in other words less than a weeks time for a small google team).

    …..what are you delaying for google?
