Technology was everywhere this holiday season. We have 3-D televisions, cool smart phones, iPads, and so much more. Plus, this holiday shopping season saw the most useful application of mobile technology to date. Many shoppers used bar code scanning technology to do ultra fast price comparisons while shopping in the store.
Basically, you pick an item off the shelf, scan it, and then wait for the results. Many services will quickly give you price comparisons and store availability on the spot.
What does this have to do with wine??? Well, the same shopper technology has come to wine as well! That’s right, now you can pick up that confusing French label, scan the bar code with your smart phone, and get a near instant interpretation of what is in the bottle. Services like Cor.kz (http://cor.kz/) make wine shopping so much less daunting.
Such services unlock a ton of useful information. For example, you can compare prices more easily, get ratings, learn more about the wine, maybe even us it to check the vintage quality.
