If your wondering what Microsoft Tag is, it is basically a tag that your mobile device can read by taking a picture of it, send the results to Microsoft and return the information.

Some companies use it to link users to home pages, text information, a vCard, and even a phone number.

What's your opinion on it?

Sounds very similar to QR codes

Unfortunately, my cell phone is just a phone so I can't do anything cool like this with it.

Never heard of it. I won't be checking it out.

Until it becomes something widly adopted in companies/packaging, then there's not much point as only a few phones and companies will have it.

At the moment I've only seen QR codes used in bad efforts to drive traffic to sites.

QR codes are used extensively in manufacturing, and Japan. I have one on my card as my vCard sort of thing.
