Mint.com, the popular digital banking platform that makes understanding savings simple is now mining information from its user base and releasing infographics about spending behavior. This new “Trends” section sheds light into spending habits and how they’re transforming in this fickle economy.
What makes this development so interesting is the openess with which Mint.com is releasing this information. Further, as constant GPS becomes ubiquitous across (smart)phones, Mint.com is poised to collect very interesting localized spending habits via its popular iPhone App.

I don’t have to remind you which ad Apple is copying But still worth checking out since we never post banners much. Well executed, even if the concept was copied :

Audi A4′s Car Configurator is developed by Neue Digitale / Razorfish in collaboration with Realtime Technology AG.
The application allows multiple users to configure an Audi A4 simultaneously by changing the car’s paint finishes, rims and by selecting and coloring style package components.
The configured A4 is experienced in an immersive 3d environment, in which users can navigate seamlessly by zooming and panning using a multitouch-enabled interface (MS Surface).

Robotvision is a new Augmented Reality iPhone app that uses Bing, Microsoft’s new search engine to pull in relevant location based data. You can filter thru points of interest within a specified distance, for e.g within a 5 mile radius of your location, and the app overlays geo-tagged photos from Flickr and tweets that were tweeted nearby.
Some similar apps like this are already out there, like Yelp’s Monocle app but this app does a good job of letting you filter thru and choose what data you want to see. It also has some useful usability features the other apps are lacking – such as if you hold the iPhone directly in front of you, you get the AR view (graphics overlaid on top of your camera view) and if you point your phone to the ground, it brings up a top down map to show you were you are. You can download Robovision on the App Store (0.79 EUR)
It would be great to combine the content from Zagat’s iPhone app and Yelp’s Monocle app with Robotvision’s functionality.

Zipcar can do no wrong. In addition to the mobile site’s functions where you can locate and reserve a car, view or extend/change a reservation – they have added some pretty awesome features.
You can honk your Zipcar’s horn with your iPhone, and even unlock and lock it with your iPhone! You still need to scan your Zipcard at the beginning of your rental but once you’ve done that, you can pop the card back in your pocket and your iPhone takes over as your virtual remote.
