Claiming your product will revolutionize the industry? Dissing your competitors? Comparing yourself to Steve Jobs? If you don't live up to your own hype, you might end up permanently scarring your business. Take it from Color's Bill Nguyen and Blockbuster's Jim Keyes.

Popular check-in service Foursquare announced that it will add easy photo-sharing between friends, all tagged to check-ins. This service addresses the relevancy issues that crop up with Color, which shows you photos from random strangers all around you.
