These days, dropping loads of cash on a concert or baseball game might seem a little frivolous compared to the years of service you get out of a gadget. But all work and no play (or fancy theater outings) makes us go a little bonkers. That's where ScoreBig comes in. This website acts as the HotWire of events — choose a last-minute concert, show, or sporting event, and get anywhere from 10 to 50 percent off the list price by choosing your seats and naming your own price. You'll get an instant answer on whether your terms were accepted so you can get on with your life . . . and plans.
What's more, the ScoreBig Daily iPhone and iPod Touch app lets you check available same-day events from wherever you are. So if you and your bored pals are sitting around twiddling your thumbs, you can still get seats to tonight's hot show without paying astronomical fees through other sites like StubHub, or scalped tickets from some weirdo on Craigslist.
