OT: Blackberry LifeScan barcode capture


Hi all.

LifeScan is a barcode capture program for most cellphones with cameras. I installed it on my Blackberry and took a snapshot of the barcode on the back of the HP 30b calculator.

After the software processes the scanned barcode, I got this image on my Blackberry:


it's kinda fun snapping various barcodes of items in my house and finding what they represent. a truly geeky pastime :-)

a single barcode contains that much informations, I mean including the enconding of the picture also?!

I am rather surprised. If someone could explain, I would be pleased to learn about this.

Anyway, thanks for posting this.

Kind regards.



Oh, I'm sure the barcode number links to a database somewhere that contains all that stuff.


Don is right.
