since the scanlife download is free and is supported by all the US carriers (and i'd guess a lot of those in other countries) i don't see how this is a big deal. the carriers *want* us to scan things - it leads to more phone use. besides, the picture above may not be accurate - the 2D scans that scanlife.com offers are just 11 x 11 grids of black or white rectangles. this lets scanlife offer 2^121 = 2.65845599 × 10^36 different barcodes, which is a lot. 5 billion people scanning a barcode a second for a 10,000 years nonstop would use only 0.00000000000004% of the codes they have available. that's why they can offer free personal accounts to use for social networking, etc. my new e71 has this app - at first, i thought it would scan UPC codes, but apparently not. i'd like to find one that does.
