Pizza Compass wants to be your new best friend. The recently released iPhone app, tag-lined "No Frills, Just Pizza" is designed to perform one simple and essential task: Find all the pizza, all the time.

Introducing: Pizza Compass

If you have somehow missed the viral and utterly enthralling coverage (here or here, for instance) of the massive and extremely public meltdown of Amy's Baking Company owners Samy and Amy Bouzaglo, you're in for a real treat. The Kitchen Nightmares couple now claims their expletive-filled facebook freakout was the product of hackers. Then again, there is this video, in which a man barely escapes with his life tries to leave without paying, after waiting over an hour to never get his pizza...So yeah, I'll let you be the judge!

Domino's has done it again. And by "it," I mean yet another profoundly perplexing foreign marketing campaign. This time, Brazil's the lucky recipient of the brand's inventive tactic. Using thermal ink and what I can only imagine is fancified scratch and sniff technology, rental stores in Sao Paulo and Rio have joined up with the pizza chain to distribute DVDs that look and smell like pizza—but only after they've been played! You can watch the magic below, though Domino's regretfully has yet to figure out a scent delivery method that will provide the full sensory experience.
