Intelligent Email Software Printer Friendly Version
When I write my email, I'm sometimes REALLY absent-minded. One of the worst mistakes I sometimes make is sending mails to the wrong people. This problem could be solved by an intelligent email client that does some basic checking and then outputs an appropriate error message (e.g. "Are you sure you want to be so rude to your GRANDMOTHER?" - "Do you really want to send this business letter to yourself?" etc. etc.)
With 20-30% of the internet population ignoring unpleasant emails, I would also need a "Be a pain in the neck"-Button. The conventional method (pushing the "Forward" button and then copying&pasting the original email address by hand) gets boring after some time.
Reward: Free copy of the software.

Digital Home Hi-Fi Printer Friendly Version
I want to put an Audio CD into a device that sits on my bookshelf. A CD player. A CD player that could be a single unit or part of a compact Hi-Fi unit. I want the CD to play and record to a hard disk and be stored internally on the device. I want the CD title, author, artist, tracks etc to be stored on the device so I can replay the CD again later without having to put the original back in again.
Sure, this is not a new idea, and MP3 players and CD recorders are available on the market today, but where is the simple device. Put in CD. Play and record to Hard disk. Simple, small device on my bookshelf. Store 1000 CDs and protect my collection. CDs don't last forever especially with kids!
I would pay $1000 for such a machine, say a Denon or Sony device that was simple and easy to use. Is there one out there? I can't find one. Internal Hard Drives these days are small in size and big on storage. 40GB would cover it, surely. Look at Digital video recorders like the Tivo or Sky+ systems. Am I behind the times or is there a device out there already?
Reward: I just want one!

Non-GPS-based, computer interfaced, in home, cat tracker Printer Friendly Version
I saw the GPS-based doggy locator system post. Has anyone done this one? Use one or three (triangulation) in-home reciever/transmitters (maybe paintable, to blend into corners of ceiling) to track and record the exact location of your cat(s), while in the house (or any location in the range)? It seems like it wouldn't necessarily need a really high-power or sophisticated transmitter/receiver. . . I would've used this when we trained our second cat to use the toilet. She would occasionally use a few, favorite areas when she forgot about using the toilet. We didn't want to (but did) have to cover up or otherwise use physical blockades and clutter up our, already small, place.
The system would set off an audible command from a stereo (or shock on collar, or have small, portable, remote water squirt/sprayers, -whatever) when the pet is in a pre-programmed, discretely defined, off-limits areas. It could be linked to your PC and use a program that knows the boundaries of your home (area, whatever). You'd first take the collar around these boundaries of your place so the computer program could learn/outline the volume of range. Then you could go around and set "NO!" zones (our cats know what "NO!" and "Good Kitty" means). One could change the location and size of "NO!" zones from the computer, without moving obstacles. One could also record where the kitties have been while you are gone or where they are now, if they like to hide and sleep. It seems like having three, inexpensive reciever/transmitters would allow for realiability as well as pinpoint locating - to keep cats off vertically different surfaces like the counters, away from small "visited" spots on the carpet (cats can detect even well-cleaned areas), while allowing them freedom to roam anywhere else.
Reward: Joy of seeing a low-cost system developed and work, and maybe get a free one and/or whatever the developer sees as fair.
