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
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"
