Idea #14: Remote mail for digital nomads

In about 20 years the ice caps are going to melt, flooding all the world’s major cities, leaving everyone homeless. Get a house on high ground while you can and at least make sure everyone can receive their post! […]

Idea #13: GPS alarm

iPhone, iBrain, iRemember, iAlarmed, iLost, iMaps, iFound, iFusion, iConfusion… If this sounds familiar, read this post. […]

Idea #12: Crowdsource band bookings

Businesses paying to give money away? That doesn’t sound like them… Falsch, my friend, falsch! Companies will do anything for attention. Get your organising hat on. The idea is your power. […]
