Microsoft on Tuesday announced OneApp, a software application for feature phones. Feature phones, which are essentially low-end mobile phones without any smartphone features, are widely used in both established and emerging markets. OneApp will give users access to mobile applications most often found on smartphones, including social networking, messaging and banking apps. Microsoft's first partner for OneApp is South Africa's Blue Label Telecoms. That makes sound business sense -- the African market is growing, and World Cup soccer championships will be held in South Africa in 2010.

Mircosoft thereby supports the general ideas behind the Universal Mobile Interface concept, see http://universalmobileinterface.wordpress.com/, to overcome the major barriers to real Internet usage over the mobile. The potential is enormous and this development will be very interesting to follow.

Should businesses and organizations require staff to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination before physically coming to work?
Yes -- At this point it makes good sense and will help stop the spread of the virus.
No -- It sets a bad precedent against personal privacy and civil liberties.
I'm Not Sure -- There are valid arguments for and against vaccine requirements.
