Esquire uses 2D bar codes within magazine for mobile commerce

"By using the mobile device's camera and the ScanLife application, Esquire readers can scan the feature's bar codes to instantly buy items of clothing and accessories seen within the magazine article. ...

Each article of clothing in The Esquire Collection has its own unique black–and–white 2D bar code. When consumers scan the code with their device's camera, a menu will appear on screen that lets them perform several functions, including buying the item.

The Buy Now feature on the menu lets readers buy an item, get an itemized description and obtain additional information about items seen directly in the magazine.

Consumers can click Learn More About This Item to be taken to a URL where they learn more about the product, the brand, or alternative versions of the product.

Scanning a bar code will also give consumers the option to be redirected to a URL where they can enter their ZIP [post] code and find the brand's nearest retail location.

An update in the near future will let the GPS on the mobile device alert readers to the location closest to them.

Additionally, the scanned bar code will bring the user to an Esquire–branded URL that gives advice on how to style the item for his look or wardrobe."

Long URL Please: service reinstating original full URL

"I built longurlplease to scratch an itch – I don't like short urls because I have to click on them to see where they link to. Please just show me a long url for a change...

Plenty of people have a dislike for the misuse of short urls, even calling them evil. The reality is, short urls are here to stay.

I want to help users and application developers to efficiently convert short urls to their originals. The json api is intended for developers to enhance their web site or application. The firefox plugin gives ordinary users instant benefit – just install and wave goodbye to short urls."
