They are appearing everywhere, mostly on newspapers and packaging, they are read by android phones such as iPhone, HTC, etc... and basically if you scan them through a free downloadable app from iTunes or similar, you get quickly directed to webpages on the go while you are "mobile", so to speak without having to type long url's on small dinky keypads. If you have an android phone, try scanning the example below (which I've prepared myself using with this QR generator website http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ ) [img:2bcp8owz]http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r200/xt660/d9b23a7a.png[/img:2bcp8owz]

Agree with you blong, I'm not a fan of "plugging in". I'd get rid of my (old and outdated) cell if I wouldn't loose friends over it. Not a fan of this "connected" culture.

I am also an advocate of not-being-plugged-in... But you can control just how plugged in you are. It's easy to make Google adds and such not track your activities, and an Android phone doesn't really make you trackable at all - unless you install such apps with tracking your phone in mind. I'd say that iDrone devices might be a privacy hazard because Apple does deserve the right to collect and keep most info they get over their devices (so they can locate it if it's lost etc); not the case with (core) Android. However, carriers often have custom Android distributions that may or may not collect the extra info. Opening a Facebook/Twitter/G+/MySpace account is much, much more hazardous to your privacy then owning a device. Also, this is really nice: [url:11jmcctv]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_not_track_header[/url:11jmcctv]. I hope it becomes reality. As for this topic, QR images are just binary data in an image format. They have nothing to do with being tracked.
