The summer of 2014 is shaping up to be one of those critical times in technology when new platforms emerge and fast-moving companies seize the resulting opportunities. In the age of wearable and connected devices, who will take charge?

One of the surprise contenders is Foursquare, which has become a vital component of other apps like on-demand transportation service Uber and Pinterest, the visual search engine. Suddenly Foursquare is in the midst of a comeback and has become the favorite way for mobile-app developers to add location as a feature - which is an essential piece for our wearable tech future.
