SnapTags: Will they kill QR codes? I remember a time when truncating the UPC bar code on the cover of a magazine was a huge coup.

SnapTags: Will they kill QR codes?

Taking the huge, lumbering code, which took up too much real estate on the cover of a publication, was bothersome and affected the design space. Cutting the bar code by half, in height and width, was celebrated as a major advance in the much-needed item used for scanning the price by, at best, only half the retailers, seems so petty and foolish now.

When printers discovered you didn’t need to place the codes on white boxes, we rejoiced at not having the little lines popping out on what were beautiful covers, interrupted by alien chunks of absurdity.

Voter ID laws are quickly becoming a hot-button issue -- and Coca-Cola is jumping back from the heat. The soft-drink company has severed its ties with the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, a conservative lobbying group that drafts legislation and sends it out to lawmakers. ALEC's fingerprints have been found on bills and laws in a number of states, and the group's opponents have grown resistant to what they call ALEC's efforts to shape the legislative agenda in a way that harms minority and low-income voters.

One such effort, say ALEC's opponents, involves the voter ID bills currently under consideration in about two dozen states. Most of these bills require voters to show up to the polls with certain forms of photo identification, but progressives say their ultimate effect is to keep poor voters and voters of color -- groups that tend to vote Democratic -- from getting to the ballot box.
