This week, my cranky old cell phone died, so I joined the addict-addled world of the iPhone. And because I have to have every free application created, I joined the addict-addled world of foursquare. Because I want everyone to know how to find me. That won't be annoying at all, considering how much I like people.

Foursquare proved its usefulness within hours after I joined when I saw several recommendations for Super's Bungalow Beer Garden.

Dive bombing has officially gone digital. I hadn't heard of this joint before foursquare.

I arrived at Super's before my friend Julie and informed the foursquare world of my whereabouts before dumping my phone into my purse. It's the first time I've let go of it in 48 hours. As the bartender took my order, my purse buzzed.

"Oh, text message. Sorry," I said.

"Were you outside texting a few minutes ago? Because some of those guys yelled at someone texting outside."

Not me -- but I had a feeling I knew who it was.

"That place is hostile!" read the text from Julie.
