Well, is this really a useful app? Just a nice gimmick or a really cool idea? Well, scanning bar codes is not that new to berry users... but now MS claims to have the ultimate use for this technology. Let me quote from their site: 'Microsoft Tag instantly connects you to more information and entertainment - without typing long URLs or texting short code.
