Steve Jobs doesn’t think there’s anything cool being done in Java. At least that’s what he told Sun Microsystems’ CEO Jonathan Schwartz.
If I were Jonathan I’d pay John Poisson, CEO of Tiny Pictures to head over to Steve Jobs’ office and show him Radar.
This turns your camera phone into a social tool for sending fun stuff to your family. I got a demo a little while ago and it rocks.
Radar is sort of like Twitter (and we saw how popular that got in the past few weeks) but even better: it’s small photos for your friends. It’s getting very popular and I want it. But, the problem is I’m getting an iPhone and the iPhone doesn’t yet have a Java runtime (which Radar needs for its full-featured client — a lower quality WAP client is available, but it isn’t nearly as cool or useful).
Anyway, I’m noticing a trend here. The coolest stuff to come before my camera lately has been for mobile phones.
Maybe instead of Web 2.0 we should be talking about Mobile 2.0.
