Microsoft Finally Willing to Admit the Existence of QR Codes

More than that, actually. While the proprietary Microsoft Tag will continue to exist, our favorite Redmond behemoth has walked back their belief that the closed-system, not-free, Microsoft-created, MS-server-reliant should by rights will rule the 2D world.

Because 2012 Windows phones include NFC capability, their MS Tag now includes support for (free, open-source, non-proprietary) QR codes and the sweet future-tech du jour of NFC (near field communication).

From the horse's mouth.

  1. I think Microsoft will, at some point, learn that they can no longer profit from being greedy and attempting to monopolize all emerging technology.

    The big success stories of recent years - Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. - are all free to the users...
