CNET: As if it weren’t already a breeze to spend
money on Amazon, the retail giant’s updated Amazon for iPhone app just
made it even easier to instantly shell out for wares. The latest version
of Amazon Mobile, 1.2.8, contains a bar code scanner in its search
screen. As with bar code scanners in other mobile apps, Amazon Mobile
uses your iPhone’s camera to take in a product’s zebra-striped bar code.
Amazon’s servers then find a match, and after you select the item, you
can sign in to your account to purchase the product on the spot.
