    I am very confused because mine looks different everytime I display it... It's never the same...

    I presume you are using the BlackBerry Messenger QR code.

    I have never compared the images, but there should only be only one unique pattern that will decode to your PIN number.

    That's what I was thinking... Maybe they work differently than food barcodes...

    Good find Lak,

    A quick check on Wikipedia yields your answer...only certain sections of the QR barcode is supposed to represent the url or whatever. The rest is obviously a random filler. Look at the example on the wikipedia entry...only 6 or 7 areas of the barcode are used to designate certain information. Look at the bottom where the data is added and removed.

    Does this get you started on your investigation? :-) Seems the vital parts of the barcode hold the same info...
    Apparently, only part of the QR code is unique, the rest is random.

    This isn't a spin on the magnet question is it? ... : )

    That's pretty cool info, thanks!
