Foursquare’s 2010 was much better than mine.
The location-based mobile service saw an astonishing 3400% growth in the Year of Total Suckage.
That’s a lot of check-ins.
This terrific graphic breaks down the hot spots in travel, dining, art and music, while this blog post, wait. Never mind. The sad-bastard tech writer I was going to link to is just exactly that: a sad-bastard tech writer who doesn’t get Foursquare. Never mind.

A USA TODAY poll reports 57% of adult fliers are angered by the invasive pat-downs the TSA instituted Nov. 1 as part of a way to further endear the agency to a flying public — the very public that is already pissed off at big government and proved it at the polls Nov. 2.
The polls also shows 42% are angered or bothered by the virtual strip searches provided by the so-called Advanced Imaging Technology systems.

I thought I had posted this already. Oh well. Better late than never.
The TSA’s John Pistole tries to make fliers feel better about being groped and virtually strip-searched in this video posted on YouTube.
Video shows John Pistole at the Monitor Breakfast. He’s eating breakfast, folks. Not crow.
Holy Victoria’s Secret! Here’s where Pistole talks about the many bra bombers that TSA thwarts each year.
In an update, CBS reports that the TSA is responding to the video that features a so-called strip search of a boy.
Pew Rearch Center poll also shows 37% of Americans say the government does a good job of protecting citizens.
