Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

Great show as usual.

Question: The QR Code, why does it have to go to a website at all? Yes, if the information changes, you need to get a new QR Code printed, but at its base, a QR Code is just a collection of digits and letters. It was originally designed by Denso, the parts division of Toyota, as a stock tracking system in the 90s, but since it was co-opted to hold URLs, most people only think of this use for a QR Code. But if you look on a lot of products, they have QR Codes for their batch numbers, part numbers or other manufacturing information.

Heck, most countries now use QR Codes instead of stamps for bulk business mail, replacing the old franking machines.
