Gowalla is another check-in service that Yahoo, Mayer and Goldman could look at if they do indeed pull the trigger on another purchase.
Gowalla is pretty much the exact same thing as Foursquare, but the user interface is a lot nicer, and probably not nearly as expensive as Foursquare would be, after its most recent financing raise.

Based on my Twitter timeline, the answer would probably be no. Most of the hardcore Giants fans I interact with were tired of [Brian] Wilson by the middle of 2011 and celebrated when the Giants cut ties. Compared to Romo, who’s more of a Mission/Haight type if we’re judging these guys by San Francisco neighborhoods, Wilson is a true Marina guy — a cocky flexer with a closet full of sleeveless shirts and trucker hats.
