Arrington: Google Tried to Buy Color for $200 Million

Mike Arrington, AOL/TechCrunch:

About the same time, multiple sources have confirmed, Google was also making a run for Color, the mobile social network founded by Bill Nguyen. This was well before Color launched, and Google was looking at the company’s potential as well as the team. Google offered $200 million for the company, according to our sources.

A confusing poorly-designed product but which collects a ton of personally identifying information about its users? Of course Google wanted to buy Color.
