The weird world of barcodes, QR and auto-ID miscellany.

Barcode saves 4 keystrokes!
So the other day I'm buying a new cell phone at the t-mobile store. The sales guy has to scan about 6 different barcodes on the box to register it in his computer. The he turns to me and asks my name. Being a BARCODE NERD, I whip out my Azalea.com business card and say, "SCAN THIS". He gets a silly grin on his face and says, "Really"?
He then proceeds to scan the barcode on my business card, and ANDY appears on his screen. "COOL", he says.
