Firefox Extension: Mobile Barcoder

Found this interesting extension for firefox. Have been thinking about this for a long time but never got down to doing it myself... kinda feel left out :-).

Its a pretty neat extension, generates a QR code with the URL in the address bar. It does not follow any of the existing Vodafone or Imode specs, the url is encoded without any scheme, now all we need to do is find an application and device that supports it. The site mentions that this is compatible with series 60 third edition phones.. somehow i cannot fail to wonder if this would have been more useful if the barcode generated was a Datamatrix (Semacode).

Go Shop !

"You just shop, scan and go! You don't have to push a shopping cart around, you'll have faster checkout and there won't be any hauling your purchases home. It will all be delivered to you anywhere in Manhattan – same day if you want it – for just $15!
All of this... along with The Container Store's famous customer service! Try it today!"

Checked this out yesterday in the Container store on Lexington and 58th. They have a bunch of windows mobile PDA's from symbol (i think).. aint it cool.. no more moving around the store with a shopping cart ... just scan what u like and have them bring it out for you at checkout. I wonder if all furniture type stores will take this approach. They should !!!
