A man whose impact on the world is nearly unfathomable died Sunday. Alan L. Haberman, supermarket-executive-turned-barcode-champion, died in Newton Massachusetts from complications of heart and lung disease at the age of 81. While he did not invent those ubiquitous black and white stripes — that honor belongs to Norman Joseph Woodland and Bernard Silver — Haberman did lead the campaign to make barcodes the universal standard for electronic product encoding. He chaired the committee responsible for the designation of the zebra-like markings, which in 1973 adopted a barcode designed by George J. Laurer of IBM. In his work at the Uniform Code Council (now known as GS1 US), he pushed for acceptance of multiple standards, including RFID. His obituary can be read in-full at the source link below.

Loaning out your precious DSLR to a friend who doesn’t know shutter from aperture? Got a classroom full of trainee photographers whose lesson requires they be set to a particular mode? Canon’s hoping you’ll drop an extra $129 on a version of the critically-acclaimed EOS 7D that lets you control how your lackeys fire off shots. The $1,829 EOS 7D Studio Version adds four tiers of password-protected locking controls, plus an optional barcode and data transfer kit (to organize and commit large photo sessions to databases) using a custom version of the company’s WFT-E5A wireless transmitter for just $770 more. We can’t say we know anyone who’d use these features, but hey — if enough corporations spring for the advanced model, perhaps the original will drop in price. PR after the break.

I'm thinking about writing an app have barcode coupons customers would have retailers scan at the checkout. Does anyone have an experience with using something similar and if it worked out?
I'm a little concerned about if the barcodes will even be scannable and I've read reports of people getting it to work but other people not.
Thanks for your input

Android: Google’s already got Goggles for visual search, and Google Shopper’s mobile site can run bar-code scans. Google Shopper, then, is a free app that combines some those features together in one package for those who love to find a deal.
Unlike Goggles, which aims to provide a greater search by image functionality, Shopper only wants you to take pictures of “cover art”—books, CDs, DVDs, and other items with consistent images and iconography. It can also perform bar-code scans when it doesn’t quite get the picture, and if neither of those are working, you can simply type in the name of the product, or just say it for Google’s hard-working voice-to-text translator.
In a test on a few objects this morning, Shopper was pretty impressive when it came to books and CDs. It was fast and efficient, too, over a (T-Mobile) 3G connection, bringing back results almost instantly. Those results arrive in the form of a simple item-store-price list, though, and could be a bit more helpful. For our money, ShopSavvy offers a greater convenience, when it works, because it provides local prices, gives directions to get to the store with the better price, and has a more robust history and wishlist functionality.
Here’s the standard Google video demonstration of its latest mobile search offering:
Google Shopper is a free download for Android phones. If you’ve gotten surprisingly good or bad results from this app, or have another preferred mobile shopping tool, tell us about them in the comments.
