QR code, Google believes it’s a buffalo. But Google’s wrong!

Google Kills Off Those Little Square Codes You Scan With Your Phone

Why Google is completely and moronically wrong….

NFC tech has it’s uses, buy a coke from a vending machine.  Hoorah! But seriously, the appeal of the QR code is the simplicity in use and creation – it’s ubiquitous. 

ANYONE, and I mean ANYONE can create a QR code. Heck, an artist can even paint one on a wall.  If a deli shop wants to, they can create one for their menu. Put them on flyers, and post them around town. It can even be a coupon.

But NFC, where am I going to get a chip.  How am I going to embed that into my resume when I send it off? How is an add in a magazine going to place that NFC chip in the page? How is it not going to be confused by 50 other NFCs in all the other ads?

Seriously, this is a brain fart on the part of Google.  Not to demean NFCs in any way. More tech the better.  And it’s probably just what we need for more advanced transactions. But I view the two technologies as complimentary, rather than exclusive. Both serve different roles and have their advantages.
