Okay all you gadget crazed shoppers. I was just doing a search on Google about the new Sanyo Eneloop batteries when something odd popped up: a bar code. At first glance I thought this might be part of Google’s new shopping experience. It turns out that they’re simply celebrating the invention of the bar code and that it some how spells out Google. But this does bring up an interesting idea? What if Google started providing bar codes for product related searches? Once you find the product you’re looking for you could just print out, or better yet fire the page up on your phone and present it at the retailer of your choice to expedite your search. Sounds smart to me.
