Wait. This can not be true can it. Some have suggested that the members of MC2, that group that wants to set 2D bar code standards, were behind Neomedia one of their partner members. And we learn that Telefonica, one of those members has not only supported Scanbuy, but has adopted their technology? Something just don't seem right here with the MC2 group and whose solution they support....LOL.

awesome I put-off buying this for months, despite positive reviews. I tried every free weather app going and eventually decided to take the plunge. Glad I did - easily the most customisable weather widget and clock on caftan and the skins are awesome!
