Meterpri KlutspostedWe want to make life easier for our customers by helping them get the most out of their mobile devices, offering real value from the services we provide and by removing the barriers that frustrate them. Since our launch in 2003, we have done things differently to other mobile operators.
Here are a few of the things we’ve done: http://www.three.co.uk/
The idea here is the opposite of DeathClock.com. You enter the same information, but instead of having a negative connotation, the feeling is positive. So you start off with the site assuming you're only going to live until age 50. Then you enter that you exercise twice a week and don't smoke and it ADDS on years of your life (instead of taking off years, like on the death clock).
Ben BarrethpostedA 100% publicly editable version of a Google Docs (Maps/Spreadsheets/Docs, etc)
I've come across this scenario several times that I want an informal doc to be editable by anyone I send the link to, whether it's a Google Map, word doc, spreadsheet, whatever. The problem is that I have to manually share the doc with people that I know the email addresses of.
So for example, there's no way I can send an email to an email group of 50 people at work, with that email containing a link to the doc. Instead I have to share it with each person in the list of 50 people, one at a time.
Bob KozlikpostedI would really appreciate an app that would allow me to create a temporary black box of any size needed
that I could drag over a pesky ad that is blinking at the side of my computer screen.
Ben BarrethpostedOculus Rift + Microsoft Kinect = Floor Leveling Tool for Construction
I'm in the middle of a flooring project. There needs to be a better way to find out if your floor is level. I would love to put on a pair of Oculus Rift goggles wired up to a Microsoft Kinect and be able to visually see the topology & indentations in my floor (preferably color-coded). This would be a huge benefit for anyone in construction that needs to check these kinds of things.
I'm in the middle of a flooring project. My wife HATES to dust, especially baseboards. Why don't baseboards come with an anti-static film along the top ridge that repels & prevents dust from collecting on them? Seems like a marketing no-brainer to me...
zimonhpostedWhen viewing video's in a widow on your desktop, it is nice to be ale to re-size the window and to move it around. But if you do that the site layout usually makes it that your movie is now partially obscured. Try it with youtube http://youtu.be/dQw4w9WgXcQ. When you make it smaller than the movie it stops fitting the window. If its to big it will show the movie and half a of a row of thumbnail. It always displays a search bar in the top making the content you are watching something you have to scroll down for and this particular video has black regions that make it even more annoying.
I thought it would be nice to fix this by relating the zoom of a region to the size of your browser window. Every-time you re-size your window automatically adjust the zoom.
To do this fast you could activate a rectangle tool to select a region. That region would be displayed in your browser window so that it always fills up the whole window. Allowing you to move it around and re-size it like a VLC player movie and like in VLC and all other video players the excess regions of the window are filled with black. For your viewing pleasure.
