1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    If you've ever been on your computer and wanted to get a website you're reading onto your phone quick - don't type the url! Use this bookmarklet:

    Code:
    javascript:(function()%20{%20%20%20var%20loc%20=%20window.location.href;%20%20%20var%20qrLoc%20=%20'http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=200x200&chl='+escape(loc)+'&chld=H|0';%20%20%20window.open(qrLoc,%20'QR%20Window','location=1,status=1,scrollbars=1,width=220,height=220');%20})();
    How to use:

    Create a new bookmark, and for the location paste in the code above. When you click on this bookmark it will instantly generate you a QR code you can send to somebody, or quickly scan with your droid!

    P.S. If you don't yet have a barcode scanner, i recommend this one: Barcode Scanner v3.01 Application for Android | Shopping

    Good...or if you use Firefox on your computer just search for an extension called Mobile Barcoder. It will put a little black box in the lower right corner of your browser and when you mouse over it it will do the same thing for the current site you are on...

    Thanks for posting this alternative!
