QR Codes

What is a QR Code?

A QR Code is an image, a bit like a bar code  that you can scan using your Smartphone (you need a QR Code reader app installed on your phone).

This is a QR Code I have created.  If you scan it it will take you directly to this website – a bit pointless really as you are already on my website on your smartphone, but if you aren’t, simply load up the QR Code reader app on your phone and scan the code to view this website on your Smartphone.

No doubt you’ll have spotted QR codes in lots of different places, even on the TV – all you have to do is scan it!

Wonga.com Arena? No, St James’ Park!

So, Newcastle United Football Club have a new sponsor who have also bought the stadium naming rights which Mike Ashley controversially showcased by renaming St James’ Park as the Sports Direct Arena.

The club have announced Wonga.com as the new sponsor, you know, the short term loan company that charge ridiculously high interest rates, just like loan sharks do.  They have decided to revert back to the old stadium name: St James’ Park.

Was this just a PR stunt on the part of Mike Ashley?  It looks like it.
