I tried it on my iPhone and was able to read all 7 images. The first 6 images gave a long URL, this <>

But the seventh image gave me a clean URL, this <>

Also, I have a very old mobile phone on which I can use the camera to read the QR codes.

The app I use is here. ( I am resident in Japan)

We have been using QR codes for many years, they even appear on TV commercials so people can quickly grab information. All posters have one, they are at stations for links to timetables, fliers that come in the door in fact, you can see them everywhere.

I tried, but mine will not.

Gee... That's a shame. I guess everyone will have to stop using QR codes, as your phone can't deal with them. ;-)

I've used them a few times with my Google Nexus One. I just open up Google Goggles and it automagically recognizes the QR code and produces the URL it points to. I can then touch the URL to open up a browser on that site.

I do not think that is funny.

I wanted to know why and what for, not to have a pity party. I do not need a $200 phone, since I do everything I want on my desktop and laptops. Try getting a tablet or phone to include 3 TB of storage and able to print to 4 different printers at the same time. So I do not need to pay out for such a phone when I need other things, like 24 inch monitor and a second 2 GB drive.

If the LO site is liked by a smartphone QR code, then people needs to make sure that the phones that can use these images can read the LO site well. Not every one has a 7 or 10 inch display on a tablet phone. It needs to be read by the smaller screens, like Blackberry phones.

I just tried those QR codes and they all take me to where I can download the Linux x86 version. The web site is quite usable on my phone, so yes they do work with a capable device. Since you choose to not have a smart phone, then you shouldn't expect yours to work with it. The display on my phone is about 3.6"
