red | blu: Know which way the political wind blows


red or blueEver wonder if you're in red or blue territory?  Wanna know who around you has been dumping money on the presidential candidates? Now you can find out, and in real-time as you move around, too. A new Java app from Gravity Monkey called red | blue ("Red or Blue") for cellphones and other Java wireless devices plots out the political landscape based on your location.  The application gets your current location and maps it against the nearest individual campaign donor data taken from the Federal Elections Commission.  If you are using a GPS-enabled device, it will even track your movement through the political waters, allowing you to avoid those boring stiffs or crazy pinko liberals like so many icebergs. Available for free from Handango. Bon voyage!
