QRCodes on the desktop
QMCodes are commercialising QRCodes to link print media straight to rich web content. The idea is that you photograph the little code square, it looks like an empty crossword, with your mobile and it links you straight to more interesting stuff. This is a great idea, URLs especially on mobiles are just a pain, but I can't help thinking these links would more useful for desktops as well as mobiles. Maybe the mobile reader could auto-generate an email that goes to your email account - anything to reduce typing. Linking print and web is in it's infancy but it will be huge.
