I completely agree on this what this review says. Mobile, GPS equipped, internet devices are going to lead to an explosion of new stuff as big as the one created by HTTP. This Color thing is likely an example of this next generation of ideas.
"...if Color is used by a statistically significant percentage of folks, nearly every location that matters on earth will soon be draped in an ever-growing tapestry of visual cloth, one that no doubt will also garner commentary, narrative structure, social graph meaning, and plasticity of interpretation. Imagine if Color - and the fundaments which allow its existence - had existed for the past 100 years. Imagine what Color might have revealed during the Kennedy assassination, or the recent uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East, or hell, the Rodney King beating?"
Google needs to get on this idea...
I installed the Color application on my Droid 2, but it is no were near ready. It immediately freezes up when launched. I can't post a review of it since it appears it does not get far enough to be acknowledged as installed, I just see an initial screen, then nothing. Wait for an update or two, or for another, more fully cooked, implementation of this fine idea.
