Disruptive Technology

I listened to a podcast that was reviewing the new SDK for the iPhone. One of the apps they claimed to have seen was Amazon's store where you can use the 'phone's camera to scan barcodes and instantly see the price/availability and even order. If I ran a bricks & mortar store I'd be less than happy!
ComSkip is the ultimate example of disruptive technology. Like universal suffrage, pay equality, and the end of slavery the establishment will object to disruptive changes but society adapts and carries on. I look forward to a world that is free of the lies of advertising.
