For many years I've had a 2D bar code at the side of my blog to help people to get to my blog more easily on their mobile device when they discover it on their notebook or desktop PC. But these days I wonder if it is really still necessary!? While seeming to be very popular in Japan, bar codes to get further information haven't really caught on anywhere else. Every now and then I see a 2D bar code on a poster but if I'm really interested I'd rather type in the name of the product and let Google or Bing guide me to the website. And for me it's even more convenient, as making a search query with a single term even with a virtual keyboard is still easier than trying to remember where to find and how to use the 2D bar code reader application on my mobile device. What do you think, where will the 2D bar code story go?
