Social Media Brings Internet Marketing to Brick and Mortar via Foursquare
The first time I saw a Foursquare update on Twitter, I figured that someone must have taken a funny photo of the group that had gone out to some venue and posted it to twitpic.  I was a little disappointed but shrugged it off.  Then I started seeing them everywhere.  It got really annoying. Then I decided that I really hated Foursquare.  Just [...]

iPhone App Review – Epicurious ...

iPhone App Review – Epicurious by Conde Nast Digital
A good friend of mine insisted that I need this app.  I like to cook.  Some times I even fancy myself a gourmet of sorts.  Like last night. I had downloaded Epicurious a few days ago and had some time to play with it.  Mostly searching for ideas on what to cook and ways to cook things on my new BBQ.  Last night I decided to go strictly Epicur [...]

iPhone App Review – GoalMan by Jason Barker
Recently I started working on my life goals.  And I just happened to find a nice little goal tracking app on the iPhone.  Turns out it’s by someone I know.  So this review may be a little biased.  So what. First, setting up goals.  Easy. you set the type of progress that you’ll be tracking.  Single event, percentage, of custom ran [...]

It’s Officially Steak Season

It’s Officially Steak Season
I’m not exactly sure what makes it official but I have a strong suspicion that it is.  I’m sure it has something to do with the fact that I cooked some awesome steaks yesterday.  I didn’t really mean to, it just happened. Oh, and my poor bar-b-que grill.  It’s on its last leg.  I sat there watching it to see if it woul [...]
