Microsoft Applies for ‘Blink’ Trademark After Google Announces Product With Same NameApril 16, 2013 No Comments
Earlier this year, Microsoft Research published an app on the Windows Phone Store called Blink. The app captures a quick burst of shots from your Windows Phone 8 device before and after you hit the camera button.
Earlier this month, Google announced a product of their own called Blink that is set to replace webkit. It took Microsoft no time to file a trademark application with the USPTO for their Blink application.
Could it be a coincidence? It sure can but the timing of it all suggests that Microsoft rushed the filing at least a bit after Google’s news.

With BLINK for Windows Phone 8, you’ll never miss the best shot. BLINK captures a burst of images before you even press the shutter, and continues to capture pictures after you’ve taken your shot. It’s no problem if you press the shutter a few moments too early or too late. BLINK saves the series of images it captures from the shutter, and you can retrieve and use any of these shots from the photos hub by simply opening the image in BLINK!
With BLINK, a simple finger swipe lets you find the perfect shot now—or later. Advanced image stabilization technology from Microsoft Research removes camera shake and lets you focus on the important parts of the scene.
With BLINK at your side, never miss the perfect shot again!Tags: App, blink, lens, Microsoft ResearchApps, News
