Shopping is fun unless you are in one of those days when you have to stand on long queues waiting for your turn in the cash register. Thanks to the inventor of the barcode scanner, it has made the life of the shopper easier. Instead of manually punching in the price at the register, cashing out is made faster by simply swiping the bar code of the product on the scanner. It saves time for everybody and the results are more accurate. Hubby also downloaded a barcode scanner application in his cellphone which enables us to compare prices of a certain product among different stores. That saves us even more time. The wonders of technology - amazing!
