Foursquare update improves ‘explore’ interface

Foursquare

With the last update to Foursquare we saw improvements to the usability of the "Check In" UI, and now it is improving the "Explore" tab to follow suit. When searching a location or type of establishment, you'll be greeted with a friendlier UI that shows off pictures and a preview of the place right in the results. If you tap into a specific place, you can now swipe through user-submitted photos and relevant information like address and phone number as well.

The interface is very user-friendly while remaining dense enough with information that you feel like you're getting what you want out of it. We have a couple screenshots of the UI for you after the break, and you can grab a download at the Play Store link above.

No Sink Is Too Shallow For a Side-Filling Water Bottle

Genius comes in all shapes and sizes, and in this case it’s a cylindrical 16-ounce water bottle called the Hydros that features a brilliant access port on the side of the cap that lets you fill it from the shortest of taps, or shallowest of sinks. No longer do you have to craft a makeshift funnel with your hand, or horror of horrors, only fill your bottle halfway. More »

Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ review: a high-def 9-inch tablet at an entry-level price

DNPBarnes & Noble Nook HD review a highdef 9inch tablet at an entrylevel price

A couple of weeks back, we referred to the Nook HD as a “tablet with the heart of a reader.” And given Barnes & Noble’s roots in brick-and-mortar bookstores, the sentiment makes sense; the company has given the world a product that felt a bit like an LCD reader with some solid tricks up its sleeve. While it shares the same core operating system as the HD, the HD+ brings a bit more to the hardware party — namely, a high-def, 9-inch HD display. The change shifts some of the product’s focus toward multimedia, with a particular emphasis on the recently announced Nook Video service. That, coupled with a $269 price tag, makes for a pretty compelling combination. But is it enough to ensure that Barnes & Noble will have a winner on its hands for the holiday? Find out after the break.

Fear Not, Those Without Access To Other Avenues To Internet Porn, Google Is Not Really Censoring Results

scaled.Screen Shot 2012-12-12 at 3.52.17 PMBe brave, heroes, for the hour is at hand: Google, in their wisdom, is now filtering – or selectively showing – hardcore porn with a bit heavier hand. This means looking up “boobs” on Google brings far fewer bare breasts than before but looking up “orgy facial sex” will definitely bring up some of the sweet stuff.

Bing begins roll out of HTML5-enhanced search interface

Bing transitions

Bing’s new HTML5-and-CSS3-enhanced search interface, which was first demonstrated back in September 2010 to showcase the power of IE9, has started to roll out.

The most notable addition to the new interface is is smooth page transitions — the fade in and out — and navigation tabs (maps, images, videos, etc.) now persistently float at the top of the page. WinRumors is also reporting that a feature reminiscent of Google Instant search is being added to Bing, with page elements smoothly transitioning in and out as you type in your search query.

If you want to try out the new Bing UI, your best bet is to set your locale to United States – English and pray that you’re part of the initial roll out. Alternatively, just wait a few days until MIX 2011, Microsoft’s Web developer conference, which is when the new Bing UI should be officially launched.

Google Latitude check-in deals now available across the US

Recently, Google has been busy beefing up Latitude to make it more competitive with other location apps — and more fun to use. Location history was added recently, iOS users can post check-ins via Latitude, and now Google has begun rolling out location-based deals which are tied to the service.

If you’re in the U.S., you can now score local savings at participating merchants by checking in with Latitude. Google will also be offering “status deals,” which users can unlock by visiting a particular merchant on a regular basis. Mashable notes three status levels: regular, VIP, and guru — though partners can apparently customize those titles if they choose.

Right now deals are available from merchants like American Eagle Outfitters, Arby’s, Finish Line, Macy’s, Quiznos, and RadioShack.
