    QR codes?

    Anyone actually use these things? Do you scan them with your phone/tablet if you see them?

    Depends on if I'm interested in what they're on or not. I uses Google goggles and it does a great job recognizing these as well as text and even some images.
    It's a good way to save stuff for looking up later.

    Personally I've never once seen a QR code that I thought "hey, I really want to scan that".

    But I like the idea of it...would like to find some practical purpose I can use them for.

    I was on the train in D.C. this weekend and there was a QR code for a metro map, pretty cool.

    I know what they are, but never use them.

    We had a Christmas cookie recipe contest at the paper I work at. The winning recipe was sold at Central Market here with the proceeds going to a our goodfellows charity. In central market we had QR codes on all the signs and posters in the store that linked back to the winning recipe online.
