Default amp up before you score

Pepsi iPhone app draws fire for stereotyping - The Globe and Mail

PepsiCo Inc. is facing criticism for an iPhone application that promises to help men “score” with two dozen stereotypes of women by giving users pickup lines and a scoreboard to keep track of their conquests.

An apology by the company – which is using the app “Amp up before you score” to market its Amp energy drink – is igniting more online criticism.

Spokespeople at the company's Purchase, N.Y., headquarters did not immediately return messages seeking comment Wednesday. Despite the apology, the application was still available Wednesday morning.

The application lets users select from stereotypes of women, like the “foreign exchange student” or “nerd” or “cougar.” Then it offers possible pickup lines like, “Wasn't I in Space Academy with you?” for the nerd.

It also offers other hints, like links to world news for the foreign exchange student. For the “rebound girl” – who has just broken up with her boyfriend – it offers maps of local ice cream shops.

tasteless or not? useless or useful?

The app then lets users add women – along with name, date of the conquest and comments – to the user's “brag list,” which can be shared online on sites like Facebook and Twitter.
