if you have a smart phone, you should definitely download foursquare for this event tomorrow! what is foursquare you say? its an application where you check into the places you visit. the more you check in the more points you get to compete with your friends, the ability to win special badges, as well as the opportunity to be the mayor of a local establishment! some establishments also have special deals if you check-in or are the mayor! just a few examples are a free dessert, percentage off your meal, etc… plus you can add your friends as well as make new ones by checking out who is hanging out at the same place you are! (i know…stalkerish right!?)
anyways, friday april 16, 2010 is atlanta foursquare day! if you follow the link here, you’ll be able to find out which retailers in atlanta will be holding freebies & special deals if you check-in to their establishments. in addition, there is a special foursquare party in order for everyone to receive the “swarm” badge….i believe you have to have a certain number of people at one place to check in, in order to receive this highly once-in-a-lifetime badge!
so what are you waiting for…check it out, by checking-in!

everytime i pull out my iphone, i always get great compliments on my phone case! it’s a great conversation piece and everyone usually asks where i bought it. well look no further, because i’m about to “snitch” you the online site where you can get your very own phone case that matches your style. the company is called ultra case (www.ultra-case.com) and their super cool cases are like no other in the market!
you’re probably wondering what makes these cases so awesome. well one, they aren’t bulky so it doesn’t add any additional weight or thickness to your phone. two, the plastic used to create these cases do not stick to your clothes, making it very easy to take your phone out of your pocket. finally, the look is awesome! when i first bought my case about a year ago, they only had a few designs…now you have endless opportunities with color, texture, and even jewels! plus they just designed new cases for blackberries as well.
prices start as low as $19.99 to $24.99 for your average cases and can go up to $179.99-$299.99 for your jeweled cases…just in case you needed some additional bling.
for your majesty
