Foursquare can merge location data, but not user data
I love that companies with millions and millions of bucks in VC can figure out how to combine complex location data, but when I screw up an email and have to create a new account I'm just fucked. When I got my iPhone 5 I incorrectly added @me instead of @mac (also kudos to Apple for forcing these stupid changes through the years). So now I have one, basically orphaned account, which has a bunch of family stuff and history, plus one new account with some awesome check-ins I'll never get back if I delete. OH and it is tied to a bunch of apps already. Unbelievable. There's "no way to fix" because I'm likely .00002% of their user base with this issue. Still, it's nonsense.
