<div class="quote-block">It sounds like something straight out of a futuristic film: House hunters, driving past a for-sale sign, stop and point their cellphone at the sign. With a click, their cellphone screen displays the asking price, the number of bedrooms and baths and lots of other details about the house.<br><br><br><br>
...<br><br><br><br>
In Japan, McDonalds customers can already point their cellphones at the wrapping on their hamburgers and get nutrition information on their screens. Users there can also point their phones at magazine ads to receive insurance quotes, and board airplanes using their phones rather than paper tickets. And film promoters can send their movie trailers from billboards.</div>

Hope that doesn't become normal, we should not be expected to have cell phones in order to easily get things like nutritional information.

It's about time! I always felt bad never talking to my cell phone, but through it. Now my cell phone can talk to bar codes and I am guilt free!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:">

I don't think that's the expectation.<br><br><br><br>
But wouldn't it be nice if you wanted information, a place was out of flyers (like a house for sale! that always happens), and you could use a barcode instead.
