    QR Codes and Microsoft Tag

    Microsoft's released their Tag technology (Microsoft Tag - Linking real life with the digital world) and at a glance it look quite good.
    Obviously they're looking at marketing it heavily and history teaches us that when Microsoft sets its mind to something it normally ends up getting its own way.
    This is all fine and dandy so far and I must admit that I'm impressed with Microsoft Tag, especially the fact that it scans tags correctly even when oblique and out of focus.

    The pain is that I'm well down the road with implementing QR Codes. So much so that I've completed a browser toolbar intended to be deployed on our student PC's. The toolbar has (amongst other things) a button that, when clicked, displays the student's timetable for the day. The timetable contains a hyperlink that displayes a dynamically-created QR Code containing the timetable data, so that students only need to scan it with their phones.

    I can just see in future Microsoft will overpower what I'm doing with their Tags, so I'm thinking that perhaps I should look at changing NOW, seeing as we've not yet gone live with QR Codes.

    What do you think?

    Is this like the Scanner on the Nokia N95?

    Yes, newer Nokias have the scanning software to read QR Codes installed as default.
