Ignore me, too! (automatic) Printer Friendly Version
What I hate most about modern email times is that more and more people believe that emails can be simply ignored. While this is partly understandable and probably due to the rising wave of spam that is sent by machines anyway, I find it incredibly annoying when you really have a request or problem and are longing for an answer.
Two ideas:
1. An "I definitely want an answer" setting. Your email program will monitor if you received a reply to a particular message, and if you didn't, it'll send out a second mail insisting that you are still waiting for a reply. Such a second mail usually works very well if sent manually, but I find it increasingly difficult to keep track of all of the mail I have sent that has remained unanswered.
2. An "ignore me, too" setting. - Sometimes, the "I definitely want an answer" setting will fail. Some people are simply impolite, they won't reply, or it'll take them forever to answer. Then, all of a sudden, they need something themselves, and then it has do be done really quickly, of course. My suggestion is an "ignore me, too!" setting in the email program. Once activated, it'll keep track on how long it took someone else until they finally got their reply out, and it'll delay your own message for the same time span.

New Release Update Service Printer Friendly Version
Yes, everyone knows that Harry Potter's latest is being released today, but how often have you gone to a book or record store and noticed that something new had been released by your favorite less-well-known author or artist six months ago without you notincing?
It happens to Stig and me all the time: if your tastes are anything other than completely mainstream, you can't count on being informed by advertising, and you might miss a product you'd like to have.
Why not create a database where you can input your favorite artists, and they'll send you an email whenever they release something new? You could customize it to send you a reminder weeks in advance, or the day of the release, and wouldn't miss out.
I'm sure major publishers would appreciate (read: sponsor) this, since more people would buy the product at the release date, and less would buy used or ignore it completely.
Reward: A bi-monthly reminder that Liz Phair isn't dead. Thank you.
