7-Eleven Slurpee Application

How often do you get your Slurpee fix? Well now, 7-Eleven will reward you for your habit. The Slurpee Mobile Application for your Android or iPhone connects all Slurpee fans through Foursquare, encourages you to collect points with every Slurpee purchase, lets you search for your nearest 7-Eleven store and even tells you which flavors are available that day. Watch our video demonstration, then download it for yourself by visiting www.7-eleven.com for more details. After reviewing the app, we think it’s a compelling way for fans to connect with each other and the brand and have a reason to keep going back for more… just what every big retailer craves.

Tabbed Out Mobile Application

How many times have you left your credit card with the bartender because it was too crowded at the bar or you just forgot to close out at the end of the night? One of the newest technologies for your phone is the ability to store your credit card information securely on a mobile app. In this episode of Pushing Buttons, we review TabbedOut, the mobile application for your iPhone that allows you to literally “Tab Out” when you’re ready to leave. Tip and all. We think it’s pretty convenient. (Plus, when you close your tab, they provide CabbedOut for easy access to taxi numbers so you can be responsible when you leave the bar.)

4-D Building

A mix of green screens, 3-D animation, architectural mapping, imagination and lots of dough, promoters of The Tourist grabbed our attention when they produced this 4-D building stunt in December. Check out what you can do with a budget that’s more impressive than the movie itself. We saw the film, it was terrible.
