    When have Telstra in Australia used these barcodes before, then?

    Try looking up the meaning of the word 'unique', ****wit. You clearly don't
    have a clue.

    Actually, it reads them in two dimensions. Because if there was no
    "height" (parallel to the bars), the bar-code reader wouldn't be able to
    "see" them.

    I suppose YOU think there are bar-codes existing all around us, but that
    we can't see them because they exist in only one dimension (perpendicular
    to the bars)?

    Why, because you enjoy the oppurtunity of making yourself look even
    stupider?

    Nope - the information is stored in one dimension and it reads it in
    one.

    Yes, that's right - but it's still only reading _one_ of the dimensions.
    It doesn't pay any attention to the height (ie, the second dimension).
    That's only there to ensure the one dimension of information is actually
    readable.

    Again, it stores information in one dimension and is read in one
    dimension. Yes, the bar code is a two dimensional printed image, but it
    stores one dimension of information and is read in one dimension. A QR
    code is also a two dimensional printed image but, unlike the UPC, it
    contains two dimensions of information and is read in two dimensions.

    Seeing you're obviously getting awfully confused by this
    not-exactly-complex concept of dimensions of information storage vs
    dimensions of an item in the physical world, go do some research before
    you dig your hole deepper with your next response.

    PD
