So what’s so great about the iPad 2? First off, it’s 33% thinner and 15% lighter than the 1st generation. Apple continues to prove to us how they can take the most sophisticated devices and make then thinner and higher performing (the MacBook Air comes to mind). The most important feature (we feel) is the addition of a front-facing and back-facing HD camera. This allows for FaceTime, a new feature that was released exclusively on the iPhone 4 last year. A faster processor (Apple dual-core A5 chip) allows for faster web-surfing, improved graphics, smoother apps and an overall better experience.
Many businesses bought the 1st iPad and for them, it’s a valuable asset. “There is a huge and growing acceptance of the iPad into enterprise IT, that, when combined with its popularity, iPad price point, market-leading innovations and a first-in advantage of hundreds of thousands of Apps will propel the iPad 2 deep into business culture”, says Michael Stricker, Social Media Strategist at WebiMax.
So with all the new features and it’s release date 11 months after the original, we want to know how many people are going to be in line at 5:00pm this evening?
QR generators can be quite a challenge to find, however. If you were to type “QR Generator” into Google, there are 3.8 million results. Most of these are through a third-party website or company that can add their contact information, advertising themselves at the same time. Not bad, economical advertisement. But there are some out there in the marketplace that have the basic fulfillments most people would be looking for. Here is a quick and easy QR generator that gets the job done.
These can be added to a multitude of locations. Your e-mail signatures, your company website; enter the new era of “contact-us”. So now you may be asking yourself “ok I have the QR barcode, how do I scan it?” The Apple iPhone App store has some sufficient barcode scanners, some that are Free and some that cost consumers $.99. The Blackberry and Android smartphones have their similar apps as well. All of these will work.
The next time you find yourself manually entering a contact into your smartphone, don’t be bashful to say to yourself “can’t this person just have a barcode I can scan?” Now you will find yourself with more time to do what’s more important to you at work.
