Mobile ID card to be based on Microsoft technology – Blunder ahead???

By | February 11, 2012
Looks like the next generation of German ID cards are going have a mobile ID option. That's a good thing, assuming they can figure out how to handle the common case of physical smartphone theft, especially given how few users protect their phones from data theft properly. And Microsoft does do some innovative things. However, given their current weak position in the smartphone market, I seriously wonder if they are the right partner for this sort of project.
