The Null UPC
Emulating my too-hip-for-the-room 13 yr old, I switched to a Sidekick II this last week. I won't bore you gushing over how cool it is.
What I will share with you is a shot of the UPC located on the shipping container. If you know anything at all about UPC symbols you have to ask yourself why oh why would anyone bother to employ such a null bar code. What, you don't have your own freakin' company prefix? To lame to use a number system 4 symbol?? Is this a mistake??? Inquiring minds demand to know.
