Hurricane Timeshares Printer Friendly Version
Living in hurricane country we've always got to know what we're going to do when a hurricane comes. For a lot of people that means run like hell. Seems like sticking around would be a lot easier if you could do it safely. That's where this idea comes in. There are several companies in this area who have had the foresight to build their headquarters so they were strong enough to easily withstand a category 4 hurricane. They could make some extra money out of that fact by offering hurricane timeshares. The way it would work is simple - you agree to pay a 10-20 monthly membership fee to get a timeshare. In return, if a storm hits the company lets you stay in their building for the duration of the storm. That would save you the trouble of taking your chances on the road or spending a couple of miserable nights in a school shelter. Membership rates could be increased for those who wanted the company to store a personal supply of water and whatever onsite for them. I'd sign up for a timeshare like this. There are probably a lot of companies that would even pay for the memberships on behalf of their key people so those people would stick around and help get the company get back up on its feet faster. Hospitals should definitely do it for the staff and their family members to keep them around.
Other regions where temporary disaster strike could also offer this kind of timeshare.

Taco Bell Delivery Printer Friendly Version
I think that Taco Bell delivery would be an outstanding service to all who want the food but do not want to travel to get it. Especially if you have been drinking.
Charge a small delivery fee - $1-$2 and watch the profits go through the roof.

Rent a Gadget Service Printer Friendly Version
More and more pdas, gadgets... coming out every day. I really want to get hand on some of them but not buying them. I know you can buy them and return them (morally not very good) or sell them on ebay (too much hassle and a couple days of usage can reduce a lot of value. And I don't care playing with a used gadget).
So why don't we have services for renting gadgets for play? The manufacture should be happy that customers pay for trying their products.
The question is that how much would I like to pay?
For example, I won't like to pay 300$ to rent one $400 gadget for one year. But I would like to pay $300 memership fee per year for renting 20 gadgets priced from under 100$ to 6 or 7 hundred.
Or I may like to pay $20 to have a hot gadget for 1-2 days. That is $3000-$6000 dollars a year from the service provider.
