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
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
