Well it was just an idea, i thought there would be no harm in suggesting
it,  will it cost extra to put one on the official cd wallet, ? I just
thought it may help people who pick up a cd from say a cafe or somewhere
and can scan the code for more info via the official website

I am seeing QR codes on a lot of things,  we have a real chance in 2012
to make inroads,  and with windows 8 out in 2012,  we need every edge we
can get,  as Microsoft will market this with a lot of aggression.  so we
need to do the same but in our own way with our limited budgets,  I am
keeping the codes on my flyer.
