Wireless Encryption

Why are we forced to use a preshared key that everyone else has? Why cant we connect to a wireless access point and choose our own passwords. I had the idea today while having lunch with a friend. They told me the password to the wireless was anything I wanted it to be. Obviously they were wrong. However, it made perfect sense. My traffic could be as secure as I wanted it to be from everyone else.

Email vs Fmail vs Gmail

Its not that facebook is going to get email or whatever. No one addresses the issue of technology being able to follow you. I should have one account that you can send a message and it will reach me by voicemail, email, sms, and phone call or some mixture of them all.

Thats the real problem and maybe the wrong solution. You should have one way to contact me and be assured that I will be contacted.

Jitterbug Laptop

It seems all too often in todays world we need things to do more, create more, and give us tons more options that are merely stepping over dollars to pick up pennies.

Maybe we need an operating system and computer that has large print, big keys, and large icons. Something so very simple that even our older generations can use it. I'm talking a brower with just four buttons across the top. Im talking an email client with an Inbox and a simple calendar. I'm talking a program made just for sharing family photos with your grandmother.

Our older generations do not use computers because they are too complicated, too much change, too many other reasons. Keep it simple stupid. There would be a very large market for a jitterbug type laptop and by that I mean "cash hand over fist".

Cell Phone Ring Tones

You could build a database of famous things or let someone else upload something and then you can make a custom ring tone.

Microsoft Best Practices

I must be the only IT professional who still believes the best systems are the ones designed for your use, not everyone's use.

Automobile (Car/Truck/Van) Media Center

Cars with a computer inside them that are wireless and can connect to a home base in your home. You use your personal computer to sync music/videos/other media to your vehicle.

No more messing with dvds, cds, or zunes/itunes. You just sync what you want to your car over the wireless connection and your kids have a simple interface to touch what they want to play. You could have an optional cable hookup for quick syncs.

Dont get me started on reading your email to you over the radio or even working on documents at lunch time. You hook up to a 3g network and you can have a simple touchscreen web browser with a blue tooth capability for headsets and mice/keyboards.


I forgot to include on the 3g you could watch streaming media from websites for your favorite tv shows like Hulu or CBS/NBC/ABC/HBO/SHO etc... In fact you could even have a website where you can watch all those shows over a wireless internet connection (be it cellular or wifi) for a fee. I know several moms right now would pay 39.99 a month for unlimited media in their cars for the kids.

Cell Phones in a Think Pad

If the IPAD came with a built in cell phone and a blue tooth adapter for a head set you would agree that this would be great! Right now one must carry an IPHONE and an IPAD for all their needs. Forgive me for being simple but if you combined them and could just carry the IPAD your life would be easier.

Adults are probably the biggest consumer of this product. We could call it the IPHAD

First Idea

Cell phones are a means of personal communication. However if you have a group of friends you should be able to have a bit control over their phone, nothing security violating but something that allows you to express yourself to them through your phone.

When you are calling your friend you should be allowed to select the ring tone (perhaps a particular song) that your friend will hear instead of the usual ring tone. One way of using it would be your girlfriend can play a song that you hear on your phone ringing when she is upset with you.
