Reply to post: Starbucks

Smartphones aren't tiny PCs, but that's how we use them in the West



I don't know about the UK (or the iPhone) but my US, Android, Starbucks app generates a set of QR codes which are read by the same laser scanner that Starbucks uses to scan in items purchased. Why more chains couldn't adopt this is beyond me. Hell, I'd even be willing to install their app if they did.
