Pocket Cordless Phone Printer Friendly Version
I would like a flip-type handset for plain old cordless phones. While we all have cordless phones, they offer no protection to keep the buttons from being accidently pushed. They have them for cell phones, why not for cordless. I carry a phone with me all day but would like to be able to put it in my pocket. We keep 4 phones in our home/business and I'll be the first buyer.

Grannies and orphans Printer Friendly Version
There is a huge number of abandoned, bereaved, or simply lonely old people in Britain. There is a similar number of abandoned and bereaved children with no one to care about what happens to them. Could these two groups not be brought together? Perhaps in the same home? It seems to be a compassionate solution for many, with the added advantage of the possibility of some shared facilities and shared care.
Reward: if one shared home could happen and be successful...

Improved DVD or CD Printer Friendly Version
I know DVD readers use a laser to sense minute fluctuations on the disk to transfer them electronically into a signal. So my idea is to have multiple layers on each side of the disk. You would then have to have a reader which knew which layer it was reading and could avoid the signal from the others. You would also have to have a disk made to where the actual fluctuations on the disk could be picked up by the laser, or could be looked through so to speak to the other layers. For instance have the marks about a quarter the width so the laser can still see it, but it also still has three quarters of the laser looking beyond. Some DVDs can hold about 7 gigabytes of information. With both sides having multiple readable layers, there is no telling how much information you could store on one disk depending on the layers. You could then store almost every song you have on a cd on one disk, or store multiple movies on on DVD. I am no engineer, but it seems plausible considering our technology abilities.
