NeoMedia lands its first brand licensee – Kraft Foods

Rating: Proves that QR codes are far from dead

Although NFC (Near Field Communication) might be the proximity technology of the moment, QR codes are far from dead.

CTIA Mobile Search Panel Go2, Yahoo!, Medio, NellyMoser, JumpTap, Slifter

Apart from my personal thoughts that white label mobile search was winning the race against branded at CTIA – there was little more excitement.
Boring questions were asked and the each provider played it safe saying how great they were rather than pitching the future. I suppose that is what they were asked to do, but [...]
