Does Anyone Actually Use QR Codes?

Does anyone use QR codes?

I don’t see the value in QR Codes.  Maybe it’s because I don’t have a native app on my iPhone to scan them, but I think it’s because no one has given them any use to the average person. I know there are bundles of great uses, but until they can save me time and money, I’m happy using Google to find out what I need to know.

I’ve recently seen people begin to use QR Codes as avatars on Twitter.  Do you seriously think I can scan your avatar with my smartphone when I’m looking at your avatar on my smartphone?  Or if I’m using my computer, isn’t it faster for me to just click a link?

I can only presume the people who use QR Codes as avatars are robots. They pose as humans and trying to take over the world.  It’s like the Matrix or Terminator, but with boring, square-shaped barcodes.

Still, I feel like I’m missing something.  Does anyone actually use QR Codes?  Have they made your life easier?  Have you sold out to the robots?  Inquiring minds want to know before we get branded with a code of our own.
