You put something in the oven, set the timer and want to drink or have a smoke in the garden.
Oven timer that synchronizes with your smartphone app so you can see the remaining time until you need to go back to the oven, and also get an alert when time’s up.
Avoid both buying the same items twice or not at all because of you either both went shopping (maybe even also one of the kids) or none of you did because you all thought the other one did.
A smartphone app that everyone in the family who does shopping for everyday items installs. There is one shopping list with two views – a shared one with all the items, and your list of the items you chose to do the shopping for. Each person can add a new item to the shopping list, or mark an item in one of two ways:
1. I am going to buy this today
So if you know that on your way home from work you are going to pick up milk and eggs, you mark them as “I’ll get this,” so others can see that it’s been taken care of and not plan on buying it too. When you bought the item, you mark it as “purchased.” You can also purchase an item someone else is going to if it’s not purchased yet, by “stealing it from them” and marking it as “I’ll get it.” In that case, the other person already planning on buying it will get an alert.
You are going somewhere and don’t want to carry the physical book with you, but would still want to continue reading it.
A function of the ebook software on your smartphone or tablet that allows you to point the camera at the page you are currently reading in your physical book. The app will recognize it and take you to the same spot in the ebook so you can continue reading.
If you create content online you want it to reach the largest possible audience. One solution is to publish it on many platforms. First on your own blog, then as a guest on other publications like Huffington Post, Medium, Facebook, LinkedIn etc. Currently, you need to create copies of the original (and hopefully tag it so that Google doesn’t consider it duplicate content), which means there are many different unsynced copies.
Created a mechanism where the other places that are also publishing your article dynamically get it from your original source, with some added optional context (like explaining where it was originally published.) This will keep all copies in sync with your original one and guarantee your control over it. At the same time, it will be easier for the other publications to insert it anywhere they want.
