Phone Home Video Recording Printer Friendly Version
A system that allows you to phone home to your video recorder to tape television programs you may have forgotten to time or program in. Phone menu allows you to pick what channel you want and start recording... that is how simple it needs to be... anymore complicated than that and you lose most of the public who cannot even program their videos in the first place. Especially a good idea for new generation dvd recorders.
Reward: at least half a dozen of these units to give to family and friends.

Security Device for Smartphones Printer Friendly Version
The core of this invention is the inclusion of a security routine, either in the OS, in the cloud, in the firmware or as an application of the device, or other. This security system operates as follows; (1) a pattern if typical usage is constantly recorded and becomes a training set, (2) if the pattern of usage is detected that is not consistent with the training set then the user is asked for a secure password, (3) if this password is not entered then the device is locked down, or wiped or other secure actions take place.
Firstly, after the software system is installed on a device the software starts recording all user inputs and usage patterns, including:
1. Touch screen inputs, inclusive of typical errors and typos made
2. Voice entry and phone calls, inclusive of person recognition by voice characteristics
3. Application menu options selected, the order of menu selection, typical times and dates for specific application to be used etc
4. Types of websites visited
Smart algorithms running on the phone or a cloud computer then convert this common usage data into algorithms that detect uncommon usage, which are indicators of a third party using the smart device. If this is detected the suspected third party user is asked for a password, which if not supplied enables the phone to be locked down or even wiped, or any other secure action taken. Note there are two types of common usage modes that can be detected:
1. When actual usage does not match the training set by action (e.g. when certain touch screen errors are not made), or
2. When certain function are not performed when they normally are (e.g. a weather website is not visited as it usually is).

Cell Phone Light Printer Friendly Version
How about a light as an accessory on a cell phone. You would press a button on the side of the phone and the light would go on, thereby allowing you to read a menu, a show program, or see your key hole at home or at your car in the dark. I know that many cell phones have "lighted" faces, but it's not enough light and is not easy to direct it to an area to help you see in the dark. This light would run on the cell telephone battery. This would be a very simple addition, and would be very helpful.
Reward: a free telephone with this device added for me and my family members
