From Michael Gannotti on SharePoint Microsoft Tag It!

In case you missed ii amidst all the noise surrounding the release of Windows 7 beta yesterday to the general public there was another release that got me particularly excited. Tag It! was released. Tag It! allows you to place a graphical icon on any offline item that when a supported phone is aimed at it will take you to associated web based content or download a persons vCard, amongst other things. The description from the site reads:

Microsoft Tag creates unlimited possibilities for making interactive communications an instant, entertaining part of life. They transform physical media (print advertising, billboards,product packages, information signs, in-store merchandising, or even video images)—into live links for accessing information and entertainment online.

With the Microsoft Tag application, just aim your camera phone at a Tag and instantly access mobile content, videos, music, contact information, maps, social networks, promotions, and more. Nothing to type, no browsers to launch!

    with added information regarding Services not only products being covered inside the act, and giving
    the buyer suggestions about what direction to go inside a situation and what needs to be covered by the
