I think Amazon should come out with a really small barcode scanner for the dock connector. From what understand, 3.0 opens that up for developers...right? Then you can scan stuff in at a retail store and compare prices or just order the product through Amazon. Sites like Pricegrabber could also do this for total price comparison. Wouldn't that be handy?

The android phone does this with its camera.

I don't see why they can't develop something like this for the iphone that doesn't need a scanner.

I didn't know the Android phone had that feature. I'll have to read up on how it works.

I actually just bought that one today. A little touchy but it actually scans the camera and finds the barcode by itself, you don't have to take a picture.

I was scanning everything i saw in home depot. lol

The app is going to come in VERY handy for saving a few pennies.
