One would think that a hallowed institution like HP would be able to print QR Codes and build the associated web content on its packaging to actually do something useful for the customer.
Guess what? It is too much to ask.
I was installing a HP printer over the weekend and dutifully scanned the QR code on the package to get the set up instructions – to my horror the link to the site gave me a “Coming Soon” splash page. Now if this was a BRAND new printer I could still live with that, but this is a year old printer that I was moving from our old office! Give me a break.
