What do you all think of the popular link shortening service Bit.ly's announcement that it will allow users to shorten links and automatically turn those links in to QR codes?
Those Bit.ly QR codes of course lead back to the original link. And all you have to do to add a QR code in Bit.ly is change the end of the bit.ly link to .qr. That causes Bit.ly to generate a QR code automatically.
This makes it easy to reach the thousands of smart phone user who have downloaded QR reading software already and the thousands who should join them in the near future as QR codes seem to have really taken off.It sure seems to me with this change QR codes have take a giant step and Bit.ly has sure staked a claim on part of that future.
You can bet that most if not all of the other URL shorting services will be joining in rather than lose out. http://amplify.com/u/dyp9
