Tornado Alert on Cell Phone Printer Friendly Version
Problem: killer tornado struck in the middle of the night in Indiana and Kentucky injuring more than 230 people, who were probably asleep and not tuned into the weather channel.
Solution: Create sofware that the National Weather Service can use to automatically call (in a single second) or send text messages to all cell phones/landlines to people in areas most likely to be hit. This will definitely serve as a warning system for those not tuned in to TV, but are carrying phones.
Reward: None

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.

Internet Opportunity Printer Friendly Version
Have you ever had the trouble of getting it all together to send someone a note or a thank you card? E-Mail is the answer, but if they are not connected, it takes ages to organise the card, stamp, pen, etc., and then it has to be posted.
I propose an organisation that will take care of all this. They would be contacted via e-mail, and they would send the hard copy for you. Any personal messages could be cut and pasted into a card or onto a letter heading. The only problems are with advertising the service and method of payment.
Reward: "Recognition" Ha Ha!
