Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Here's something that will be of interest to the Foursquare users amongst us: Starting today, you'll notice a new button above the Tweet and Facebook buttons just over to the right of many of our blog posts. It's the brand-spanking new Save to Foursquare Button. Think of it like Instapaper for places: you're cruising along reading this here site and come across a post describing an intriguing new restaurant. Click the Save to Foursquare button and a window will pop up confirming the place you want to add. (Go ahead and give it a try with Maje's new Soho store, mapped at right.)
Then, when you're out and about, check your Foursquare to-do list on your phone and there the place will be; if you're using Foursquare's newish Radar feature, you'll even get notified when you're just around the corner from the spot. Meantime, you are following us on Foursquare, correct? If not, give that a clickthrough now to get Racked tips when you're out and about. Location-based services, people. Get on board.
