Camera Phones Help Buyers: Brilliant - use a cell phone camera to scan bar codes in stores to get info about a product.  "With the camera-phone scanner, "you can aggregate a lot of different information from different sources just by scanning something. You can do that on your own or at a desktop computer, but then you have to look up a bunch of sources and go looking for all the individual sites and so on."  You might get competitive price offers, consumer reviews, or dietary information about a product.  Other codes (named QR for quick response, or Semacode) are in use in Japan for transferring business card info, getting directions and local event info, etc.  10:49:23 PM  permalink  

rss2email: read newsfeeds from your email client: "rss2email is a simple Python script that lets you subscribe to a list of XML newsfeeds and get new items sent to you by email"  9:03:02 AM  permalink  

Giving Feedburner a try: Feedburner is a service that counts and reports on news aggregators reading the RSS at a weblog site.  Interesting use of apache redirects.  8:59:54 AM  permalink
