In the wild - XV

Some QR implementations, found "in the wild.' The first, unfortunately, only available for those with Android or Apple smartphones....

The second an automotive print ad... Unfortunately the site requires Flash, so (again) unavailable on some smartphones...

The third on an insert in the daily newspaper. Scanning the QR code takes you to a web site that explains... duh... how to scan a QR code. Hmm, presumably you already know this, otherwise how did you get to the page via the QR code???

The next example is from an airport, which seems to this blogger to be an ideal place to sprinkle QR codes (to target people with time on their hands between connections)... A decent enough implementation, except for asking if you can use the phone for location services...

Finally, a QR code that takes you to a brief animation... Kind of cool, but not particularly useful in any way...
