The productivity enforcer! Printer Friendly Version
OK I don't know about everyone else but i have major problems pulling myself away from computer games to do work, I easily rack up 3 hours on a game when i tell myself I'm only going to play for 15 mins or something.
So my idea is to have a computer program running that prevents me from opening a game. Sounds simple enough but as it stands anyone with a brain cell can work out how to get around it. There's one key element to this program: When you install it on your PC, you choose 3 (could be more, this is all hypothetical) passwords, I'll come back to this later. Then the installer scans your hard disks, and finds programs identifiable as games (presumably by looking up the program launchers on a website like theigdb.com or similar). The program then encrypts these launchers, or moves them to an encrypted directory, or edits the launch parameters to stop the program executing normally.
Now comes the exciting bit. You will also edit these parameters in the installer. The game files that the program locked earlier only become available every (again, hypothetically) 30 minutes. When the 30 minutes is up, you can try opening the program. When you do, you will be presented with a password box. The password to open the game will be one of the 3 passwords you chose earlier. If you get it wrong, it's back to work for another 30 minutes.
To sum up, this program gives you a 1 in 3 chance every half hour of escaping from work to have a quick session wasting time on your favourite game. Obviously you could change all these settings, but this would also require 1 of the 3 passwords from earlier. You would also need the password to uninstall the program!

Game Pad for Mobile Phones Printer Friendly Version
I am sure everyone must be playing games in their mobile phone and often might have encountered problems in operating the cursors giving troubles due to sweat or getting stuck due to continuous use. How about a game pad that could be connect just like a headset. Pad would have all those cursors that is necessary to play the games. This would make playing games in mobile more enjoyable.

Car stereo/CD player with a TV band and weather band Printer Friendly Version
I would think there is already a product out there that has those bands (reception of TV signals and the weather). If there is please let me know. I was driving home from Tulsa Oklahoma today and wanted to listen to a football game (one of the late games). If there was a TV band in the car stereo I could have listened to the game. And sometimes when you drive home and your missing your well liked sitcom. It would be nice to hear the show at least.
Reward: If you know where one is at please let me know
