The geniuses behind Foursquare had a simple but brilliant idea: a location-based social network. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could send a quick shout to all your friends telling them where you are?

You wake up to the sound of a buzzing alarm clock and hit the snooze for a few more minutes of sleep before sitting up and checking out the day’s weather. Then in the evening you navigate back to your bed in the dark with a light from your pocket before curling up with a good book to ease you into a dreamy state.
