Microsoft have finally re-introduced the idea of smart 2D barcodes that can carry URL’s, Vcards etc.

It works great,  I’ve just got it working on iPhone and Windows mobile devices…

Shame you now need a colour printer to print them,   although I have found they scan really well off of an LCD screen.

Interestingly it looks like every time you scan a tag,  Microsoft updates their logs so you can see how popular your tags are. 

Just a footnote on this.   Looking at this,   all the tag contains is  a unique identifier something like a GUID,    the tags must go back to Microsoft to be resolved to their destination vcard, URL etc.   How clever of MS, built in audit trail and complete stats. on who’s using the service  :)
