    And I was just starting to talk my company into using QR codes… should I give up on that idea?

      No, not at all! Contrary to the misleading title of this article, QR code adoption is still going to grow at an enormous rate through out the next few years. Yes, NFC is an exciting technology but what small to medium sized business is going to have the budget to embed NFC chips into their business cards, resumes, real estate signs, flyers, etc…Why do we have to choose NFC or QR when both can exist in harmony?

         Not sure if the title is misleading… Google completely stopped the use of QR Codes and took it out of Google Places.

      Don’t give up on QR codes they still have a place, and will for a few more years… Just be aware of NFC and start budgeting and thinking about how you can use them in the future. As of right now only a few phones can even use NFC. We still use QR Codes here for business cards, posters and even inventory.
