MOBILE

In major metropolitan areas, the BlackBerry at lunchtime is a force to be reckoned with. And now it can be a device to help those urbanities actually find a place to eat with the launch of Urbanspoon for BlackBerry. (Techcrunch11/10)

Karaoke fans will soon get the chance to turn their iPhones into full-fledged karaoke machines, thanks to an upcoming new application called iOKi. This is no wannabe karaoke app either — music sensation Lady Gaga has partnered with iOKi to launch her own fully Gaga-ized version of the app featuring some of her most popular songs, which will make its debut alongside the upcoming release of her new album on November 23.

ONLINE SITE OF THE WEEK: SIT OR SQUAT by Marauder

ONLINE SITE OF THE WEEK: SIT OR SQUAT

For the women out there, I think this site/app will particularly resonate.  Ever been out on a Friday night with a need to run to the bathroom but a fear that the one you choose may look something like the bathroom scene from Trainspotting?

Yah, me too.  Here’s a site that hopes to help you on your way to pristine porcelain.  The site recently launched an iPhone app in the App Store October 19th for the necessary bathroom on the go.  Blackberry app to come.  So far, the drawback is the fact that they don’t have an extensive collection of neighborhoods included.  I searched for the East Village in the list and came up short.  The cities included for the time being are San Francisco, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, New York, Seattle, Chicago, and London.  I’d much rather see this sort of functionality worked into an existing application like my beloved Urbanspoon.

If you want the chance to win an easy $500, just add a toilet to the list.  Paying for location adds.  Tres smart.
