Oh, so it's a type of barcode that a mobile phonecan read and translate to a website link, that sort of thing?

They use these on the post office print your own postage labels - i always wondered how they worked.

Or something very similar.

I like the look of 2D barcodes. Never had call to use one of any variety, though.

I'm surprised mobile phones can read them without alignment issues, thinking of how pretty much every time I try to take a phonecam pic of a rectangular object I cannot get the edges parallel. Seems like it would be quite computationally difficult to compensate for.

Can anyone recommend a good QR code/barcode reader app for the iPhone 4?

surprised it took this long tbh, it's effectively just a url that you can't even read to see if it looks dodgy, like having a .xyz domain

(and i think alba has pointed out before that anti-vaxxers are dicking around with these as well)
