Digital voice tags

There need to be a setting on digital camera that allows you to add 5-10 seconds of voice when taking a picture.
You push the button half way, say a 'tag' like "Disney Haunted mansion with the family" or "Out with the girls" and it has a relationship to the picture, along with a geostamp.

We have 4 Gig memory cards, so space should be that big of a concern.

My old Minolta DImage Xi had this. It's a nice idea, but to be honest, I didn't use it much... I guess it depends on the photos you take, and how obvious it is what they're of!

I agree. Embedding a geo tag in the images based on a GPS in the camera would work.
How easy was it to use this feature? could you make it automatic?

The voice feature is out there. See Olympus, for example, which records just after the picture is taken.

I believe CF cards (wifi/gps) are available for geo tags in dSLRs... but know no more because I have no professional need for that feature.

What I mean by 'Idea'

By 'Idea' I mean something practical. This might be an improvement or something new but it should be practical.
For example:
"We should all have jet packs."
While a great idea, it's not very practical.
If I had an idea on how to improve the thrust/weight ratio, then that would be a practical idea. That being the only real problem that would need to be solved for jet packs.
