Masterful Low Budget DIY Solutions

There are wise people among us who are frugal and decent with tools. These masters of DIY solutions have our respect. And while some of us don't like the idea of using a beer can as a shower head, you have to admit that it's not stupid if it works.

Here's the premise behind the mobile app Cloak: Cloak will scrub the data of your "friends" using their Instagram and Foursquare information (remember, these are things they voluntarily give out) and display them on a map using your phone's GPS. Just like that, you can completely avoid them in real time as they update their information. There's a few problems, of course. Namely, you're only going to be able to avoid people that incessantly update their every move on social media - though to be fair that seems like the perfect kind of person to excise from your life forever.

Then there's another matter entirely, that this is actually kind of a dream program for stalkers. So, uh, double-edged sword I guess?
