Would be much handier if eye dropper tool had an option to display the readout (RBG, HSV, Lab, user choice) numbers in a small window of data that moved with the eye dropper tool position.  Far easier than always looking to the palette/panel off to the side when checking colors on an image on screen.

color sampling tool...listed by Ps as the 'Eyedropper Tool (i)'

but anyplace a tool icon, hovering over a pixel set (1, 3x3, 5x5, etc.) that shows the color in an info panel, should display (at option of user) the color numbers in a window next to the tool cursor.

So, for example, in addition to the main window in Ps, using the color sampler tool (s) in ACR should do same thing.

Color range eyedropper tool would be useful too.
