Why I don’t get Color


Photo of people I don’t care about using Color: Color.com

With the risk of sounding like an old man, I really don’t understand what the fuss is about this new mobile app called Color.

I’ve seen headlines that say “not since Google have we seen something like this" and "everyone is freaking out about it,” calling the app “radical,” “amazing" and predicting it will "reinvent social interaction.” 

I feel like I’m missing something. The app lets you see other people’s photos in your location. But…I’m there. I have eyes and feet, and I can look around.

The practical use that I keep hearing is that people at a restaurant can take photos of the food, and I can base my order on those photos. I suppose that’s true, or I could, you know, look at a menu. And who takes photos of their food anyway?

I don’t care about random people’s photos of their friends, babies or dogs (funny cat photos, however, are welcome.) I don’t want to see anyone else’s drunken photos at a bar, and I certainly don’t want strangers seeing mine.

So why do I want this again? -David
