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 – email@example.com – if the blogger system won’t accept 1000 characters).
