App Idea — About.Me

Posted by & filed under , , , .

I have been using for a while the about.me website and their mobile app Intro by about.me. (I use an Android phone, and as such I am supplying here the link to the Google Play appstore, however I’m sure they have an iOS one too you’ll have to search in the App Store for it.) For […]

Product Idea — Uber in Hotels?

Posted by & filed under , .

I stumbled upon this potential idea recently, when one of my friends from Romania was over here for a conference. His company was paying for his trip expenses and they put him up in a hotel in Redwood City as it turns out. As you do when you travel, you try and connect with old […]

Product Idea: AMEX Concierge by Text

Posted by & filed under , , .

I have been a big fan of American Express for years, both in the UK and USA — without singing their praises too much, I love the customer service they provide and I love the facilities that they offer if you are an Amex Platinum cardholder. I love all the customer rewards points (yup, you […]

TripIt

Of TripIt And Their Business Model

Posted by & filed under , , .

This is somewhere in between a question and an idea for TripIt — definitely not a moan! as I am rather enjoying the FREE service they are providing to me right now 🙂 Truth being told, if they read this and they decide to go with my idea, I guess I’ll get a lot of […]

evernote

Product Idea: Evernote and Calendar

Posted by & filed under , , .

This is something that I have discovered recently and it’s sort of bugging me — though I accept that this might be mainly to the (wrong) way I use certain applications. However, I still think this would be a cool thing to have. Hence this post 🙂 I know by now, by the way, that […]

Keep Your Shop On One Floor

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve decided to write this following discussions and things I’ve observed with some of the startups (in the Bay Area or on the other side of pond), as it just occurred to me that occasionally simple (yet very effective) aspects of a startup are being missed out entirely. Sadly, these results in most cases in […]

Implications of Blocking 3rd Party Cookies?

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

Now that I wrote the previous post about blocking 3rd party cookies and the (famous) Firefox release which triggered my reaction, I keep thinking about where is the online world going from here. I know a few groups in the industry are working on various approaches but I’m constantly being followed by one idea which […]

Product Idea: Connect My PES to Twitter

Posted by & filed under , , , .

Little is known perhaps about my relative addiction to Pro Evolution Soccer from Konami on Nintendo Wii. I’ve been a Wii fan since it came out and tried a few soccer games on it but I have to say it was finally PES that got me hooked on it: to all the FIFA fans out […]

Social Media Experiment

Posted by & filed under , , , .

OK so this is just a tiny experiment I’m trying to conduct — to prove how (ahem!) penetrative this social media is — so just retweet/re-facebook / whatever this and let’s see if it reaches any of the 2 girls in the photos and if it does, hopefully they get back to me. I’m not […]

Product Idea — Dropbox Reloaded

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

I just had this thought just now and I thought I have to start writing down these “product ideas” — which are just random ideas of small improvements for various products that come to my mind every now and then — as otherwise nothing will happen. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect that simply […]
