Look! In the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the dumbest thing I've ever seen in my life! Don't let your friends abuse QR codes.
Possibly one of the stupidest thing you’ll see this year. Airplane towing a banner with a giant QR Code... that none one can scan.
OK, you are running down the beach and there it is .... a random QR code with no call to action. Of course, you take out your mobile phone in the surf and spray -- match your running speed with that of the airplane -- get the camera angle just right -- wait for the wind to calm down -- zoom in. Ah, forget it.
