Single Piece Recyclable Computer Case Printer Friendly Version
Computer cases have two obvious problems. First they are not recyclable (or made from recycled material) and secondly they come in many pieces and parts and are made from various materials. Metal & Non-recyclable computer cases fill our landfills everyday with toxins.
My ideal case would be some form of injection-molded (from recyclable or recycled plastic) single piece case which could house the main computer components.
Allowances would need to be made for case cooling as well as a hinge/closure mechanism to allow easy access of internal components.
I worked for a plastic-folder manufacturer several years ago that had developed CD/DVD binders that where 100% recyclable, so if a simple design could be worked out I believe this would help reduce the strain on the environment, and eventually reduce the price of computers plus the would come in some really COOL COLORS!
Making this one single piece would allow these to be manufactured by the gazillion for little $$ once the initial molding & setup has been paid for.
I have not seen anything like (a single piece case) on the net; please let me know if you find something similar or have some ideas.
Reward: A few of these in various colors.

Hair Growth Formula For Animal's Hair Retention Printer Friendly Version
Let's face it; all animals shed hair and it sticks to our clothing and everything else and it gets in our mouths and up our noses. Now, a standard hair growth formula can be diluted and taylored to suit any animal, but it will not grow them new hair. However, the hair growth formula does something better. It will keep the animal's skin conditioned and the hair would stay on the animal year round rather than fall out and grow new hair.
I know what you're thinking here... the animal will naturally need to drop off old hair due to nature, but if the animal keeps an (average) hair amount that never changes throughout the year, then they will not be too hot or too cold. Just right all year long. The main reason we want the hair on the animal is that it causes us to need brushes, hair removers for clothing, air filters clog, you have to vacuum it up all the time and nothing good ever comes of it except all the money we throw away keeping it on the animal. It causes these and more problems, but with all hair growth formulas in the World they are specialized to keep hair on the person by a special skin conditioning formula (that can be adapted to animal skin) so we would solve the hair problem and have more adopted pets from shelters and less need to end their lives due to lack of adoptions due to pet hassels.
Reward: A hair growth formula for pets shipped to the house and a good supply for dogs and cats.

Open Source P2P Adsense Printer Friendly Version
It seems that currently internet advertising is moving into a new phase, called content sensitive advertising. Google is the main contender in this field with its adsense and adwords.
In another unrelated area of the net, Open Source is growing very fast, and in the 3rd corner is Peer 2 Peer software (or shared computing).
What makes adsense work so well is the amount of people that use it, and the google name behind it makes it better.
Think what would happen if a lot of small websites were to offer services like adsense... They would not work. But if they were to join in colaboration, developing open source adsense like software, they could be a step better.
To really compete, the little players need to work together have the advertising network built over p2p so all the players work in colaboration.
The network could be built on trust. So you trust your advertising partners, and they trust theirs etc. etc.
If any one wants to grab this idea and start running, I will gladly be a part of it (not that this is a requirement).
The only reason that I am submitting this idea, is that without the power of open source, little me can not compete with the google giant.
