Get any URL onto your phone with a QR Code Bookmarklet

If you’re like me you find yourself sitting at your computer and need to go away, but there’s some page you’d like to read, or continue reading, on your phone. Well, if you’ve got an Android Phone or essentially any phone in Japan you can just use your phone to scan in a QR Barcode from your computer screen and then open the url on your phone. I know for a fact that there are other phones in the US that can read QR Code, but you’ll have to Google around to see if your phone is one of them. Sound good? Then go here, see the screenshots, grab the bookmarklet, and let me know what you think. P.S. If you’re interested in seeing what’s going on with 2D barcodes as we start to catch up to Japan you might be interested in checking out the 2d code news site.
