Google have bought the Dodgeball SMS-which-bar-is-your-good-looking-friend-in pinging service. We described the clever Social Networking App last year as follows:

A social networking service to get you away from your PC and into the
pub. A compelling system that revolves around sending and receiving SMS
to your mobile phone. Basically allows alcoholics who find themselves
at 1am with all their friends gone home to text their friends’ friends
to see if they are still out. With this mix of booze and buddies PSFK
thinks this you’ll have a better chance of getting laid than using
Friendster!
