Microsoft Tag – Redmond’s colourful take on 2D barcoding
I’ve been alerted to Redmond’s colourful take on 2D barcoding, Microsoft Tag.
It’s an advanced barcode creating technology which stores up to to 1000 characters (compared to QR-code’s 4296 character maximum) and adds colourful triangles to its design!
The rest of this blog entry is stored in the Microsoft Tag below – I’ll leave you to decode it if you wish (clue: free iPhone and Windows Mobile MS Tag decoding apps available).
A free Tesco.com branded coffee mug will be sent to the first person who decodes this barcode and puts all the free text contained inside it into a comment attached to this blog entry (or email it to me – firstname.lastname@example.org – if the blogger system won’t accept 1000 characters).
