The only use I’ve ever found that make sense to me is a bookmarklet i use to make a QR Code of my desktop browser’s URL so I can test it out on a mobile device.

I’ve used QR codes on business cards allowing the recipient to scan the information and import it directly into their contacts.

There’s lots of great uses for QR codes – none of them involve replacing URI, which unfortunately is what marketing firms decided to make them infamous for. Using them to add a contact, “Like” a Facebook page, launch phone calls, etc.

Fryderyk: the problem with that trick is that it only works with QR readers that fully support vcard/icard, of which there are effectively zero. I’ve given up and just have a short link to my vcard (http://foo.bar/me.vcard) on the card itself.
