Was thinking about the recent iPhone 5C thread which got onto the subject of NFC, Near Field Communications. How many people have an NFC equipped phone, and do you use it, and what do you use it for? I know the possible uses for NFC, like contactless payments, but I've not seen that yet. Transferring pictures and files between phones, most people I know use Bluetooth, and almost every phone has BT. Tagging items, that seems to be pretty well taken care with by QRcodes, which are like everywhere now, and almost every phone has a camera. Exchanging contacts and social networking details, I use QRcodes for that. I even put my WeChat QRcode into my lesson materials so students can contact me if they want. So I'm thinking NFC is a technology that's yet to find a proper and widely accepted roll. I'd like to hear your opinions and experiences. About tagging items. QRcodes are ubiquitous now, see them everywhere. Like this one for getting you connected to a department store's WiFi network. ...also it would be pretty much impossible to NFC tag a TV programme or a high up billboard. EDIT:- Where the ballot says "phone", include any NFC equipped device you may have.
