    capacitive switch

    yay what nifty idea, its much simpler this way rather than manually typing the url. great software.


    This looks really cool and I especially appreciate the sentiment about controlling the middleware, however I'm not sure its the best approach. UPC is on billions of products and will be around for decades no matter what tech developments take place, its worth supporting. I think it would be more valuable to make software that recognizes standard UPC barcodes along with standards to connect to an arbitrary webservice. That way one could do a price comparison on Froogle and Amazon and maybe a review on Consumer Reports, etc.

    Barcr ( has an early release of a code that recognizes UPC barcodes for series 60 phones.
