Thanks, Apple.

As you're probably well aware, our service makes heavy use of QR code technology. But, while QR codes have been around for quite some time, native support for the 2D bar codes has been lacking in most mobile devices. We don't mind answering calls from people saying "I took a picture of the QR code but nothing happened." But, it [...]

EBay hopes 70-year-old tech will solve its problems.
