So I work at Lowe's and I run the Appliance Department in my store and wanted to get a little more tech friendly there. After all three of us in that department own Droids! So I suggested to my boss that we start adding QR barcodes that will link each item directly to our website version of that item.
He looked at me like I was speaking gibberish. I told him that I would bring him an example the next day. So that night I quickly made a few barcodes and slapped them on our signage the next day. I explained it to him again... this time showing him how my phone scanned the barcode and how it took me to our webpage with all the pertinent item info and his jaw dropped.
He immediately took me to his boss, where I repeated the process. And yet again jaw dropping eye popping amazement. Shuffled once more on to my District Manager, who happened to be there that day, repeat and amaze. I was asked to formalize my idea to Lowe's and see if we can get this off ground. When they asked how this was all possible... I simple stated: "Droid DOES!"
