Picture Delay Button for TVs Printer Friendly Version
It has happened to everyone: You have been watching a sports event for nearly two hours and nothing spectacular has happened. So you decide to go fetch a beer. The moment you're in the kitchen, you hear the commentator yelling and the audience roaring like mad. You run back to the living room to see what's going on, but by the time you're there it's all over. (Ok, they might show you a replay, but it's not the same thing...)
The solution: Push the "Picture Delay" button on your remote control before setting off for the kitchen. With this feature, the picture will lag ten seconds behind the sound. If you hear that there's something exiting going on, you have enough time to return to your TV set and see it on the screen.

Watchworthiness Notification Printer Friendly Version
Here's one: in exchange for a small extra fee paid to your cable provider, they would notify you whenever a sports event is close and worth watching.
For example, nobody ever watches tennis, but wouldn't it be nice to receive a message saying "Turn on channel 17 - there's a 14-14 tie in the final set..." so you could see the epic games without wasting time on the dull ones?
Reward: Two tickets to the Australian Open. Plus airfare...

Telemarketer Prevention Printer Friendly Version
Develop technology, intrinisic in the home phone, that before the phone even rings once, answers; "If this a telemarket, donation request, political call, or if your number has caller ID block, please hang up and do not try again, otherwise stay on the line and your call proceed as normal." The technology to create such a phone would have to be created.
Reward: Graditude of all those people who detest such calls.
