Make TrueView for shopping automatic, by detecting all products available to buy from any store in all YouTube videos, then automatically pay YouTube creators a 4% commission on each sale. YouTube revenue 10x overnight! Make it easy to pick from product lists which product is featured if auto-recognition based on Titles/Descriptions/tags/voice-recognition isn't enough. Enable 1-click purchases directly from the YouTube overlay by partnering with as many retailers as possible. Revolutionary!

Wordpress on Google Compute Engine, is it easy, safe, cheap, reliable to host Wordpress on Google Cloud yet? Does it support safe upgrades for new versions of Wordpress and plugins? And auto backs up and basically everything in Wordpress can run reliably on Google's Cloud?

You can create your own server on Google Cloud... so it runs as reliably as you build it. ;)

Yes Google, put the Buy Now buttons overlayed on YouTube videos that feature any product that can be bought. 10x YouTube's revenue. 10x improve YouTube's content.
Company will launch buy buttons on its search-results pages in coming weeks

Auto-follow Drone is the most important feature for the drone market. I'd like a system using object recognition from the Drone camera. It should recognize you and follow you even without a beacon device. Although the beacon device is ok and also useful for remote controlling for behind/front/loop/multi angle interview mode and land feature. Drones should be autonomous, you just throw them in the air and you shouldn't have to control them. They should also include automatic obstacle avoidance. Even the smallest and cheapest drones should have this feature! Automatic battery swap even on a back-pack should also be a revolutionary feature.

+Nicolas Charbonnier  Indeed, it is technically feasible now (no extra hardware) to get those drones with embedded camera (that send a video feed to the phone through WiFi and are controlled by the phone) to be automatically navigated by the phone. It would require to open up the drone app software so that the communication protocol between phone and drone is known, and also how the video streaming details work. If the drone can lift 150grams, then it's possible to attach the phone to the drone and have real autopilot at no extra cost.

The direction that the drone market takes at the moment, is to provide a good facility to create apps for them. App stores for drones! An example is Erle Robotics, http://erlerobotics.com/blog/home-creative/ which runs Ubuntu and it's feasible now to create apps for it. In addition, the Erle Robotics drones are modular, which makes it even easier to get modules like several cameras or a multi-core SoC. The cameras could be simple cameras that are suitable for OpenCV. In addition, the SoC board should have several camera inputs (MIPI interfaces). The navigation cameras with direct attachment to the board, should become a standard feature for future autopilot drones.

It's not easy to compete with Google Maps which probably has a few trillion hours of usage in advance as most of the world constantly uses Google Maps ergo all usage automatically improves Google Maps and through all kinds of massive work done by Google to improve Maps such as street-view cars and also the Billions of Android users using Wi-Fi and cell positioning also all improve Google Maps by default even when they don't use Google Maps! But hey, Uber and others seem to really care about owning an alternative to Google Maps, for some reason they don't trust them?

Bainisha Body Motion Capturing using Printed Electronics Bainisha is a high-tech start-up dedicated to the development of a new paradigm in Body Motion Capturing. This interview, taken at the IDTechEx event on Wearable Technology, shows some of the product they are working on. Based on a thin hyper-stretchable film version of an Inverse Artificial Muscle, it delivers a set of new and hitherto unattained functionalities in terms of accuracy, speed & differentiation. The on-body concept guarantees an Absolute Body References Frame and hence sets a new standard for Medical Quality Data. Because the system has no "wake-up"-threshold and no filtering and/or damping combined with a +kHz capturing speed, it allows capturing such minute displacements as muscle tremor, pre-natal contractions, fatigue induced tremble etc... as well as explosive kinetics.

Real Android for Work, this is the next step: Andromium OS on MHL Lapdock, Productivity multi-window UI for Android Gordon Zheng, Founder and Lead Developer, presents Andromium OS http://andromiumos.com, described as a guest OS that run on top of Android, leveraging existing Android API's as well as a new UI library to bring a productivity keyboard/mouse desktop style user experience similar to Windows and OSX. Currently Android does not support a true multi-window experience, however some manufactures like LG and Samsung have made some modification to android (ROM) to bring the side by side apps and windows app experience for their devices. Andromium takes a similar approach, while Samsung and LG's approaches are exclusive to their devices, Andromium OS runs on any Android device as long as their device support Android version 4.4 and above. The next step for Andromium will be to release a Developer SDK and Andromium app store to the developer community, to grow the OS ecosystem.

The Andromium SDK, designed as an additional library that developers can import into their existing Android projects, allowing their android apps to inherit the Andromium OS multi-windows functionality, as well as have the correct UI elements for a keyboard and mouse interface. The Android developers can continue to use their favorite Developer environment: ADT or Eclipse, they just have to import Andromium's library into their project.

Currently Andromium OS in on the Google playstore as a public beta (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.andromium.os), it is currently around 5mb download. Long term the OS/App will stay relatively small. Andromium can support most devices on Android 4.4 and above (including Lollipop). The Andromium OS/UI is hardware accelerated, so that users should experience 30fps or above according to the performance of the ARM Processor. For example on a Samsung Note 4, Andromium OS can play a 4k video, surf in the browser and still have close to 30fps ui rendering when moving or resizing the application windows.

I think Uber should be nice and take a smaller share. I'm hoping Google competes with its own ridesharing service default superimposed to Google Maps, with Google hopefully only taking a 5% share.

The goal here is Uberpool, riders can pay half and accept that drivers pick up a second passenger going in the same direction, environmentally and for traffic it would be best.

Sure Uber needs to be nicer to drivers, and to riders, but supposedly they are paying around $7-$8 Billion to drivers this year? Perhaps $20-$30 Billion to drivers next year?

The self-driving thing is not going to replace all cars overnight. It'll fix the problem of all these people dying in traffic, but again not overnight.

What you should campaign for is for Governments to make Uber legal and to regulate it, to force all insurances to cover Uber drivers, Uber should also pay taxes on their giant profits right there in the city where they are driving in! (are they?) More carpool lanes everywhere. Clean electric or hybrid Uber cars should get less taxed than regular polluting ones also for example.

I think you can complain to Uber for riders who smell bad and treat you bad, ratings go both ways, and I would expect them to have report a problem option for drivers also.

I don't know your city. I think the Uber algorithm, supply and demand thing, has to be tweaked differently in each city and in each area of each city.

A nice thing for drivers should be for Uber to buy the cars for them, to not take a $1 safe rides fee on top of the huge 20% share that they already take. And let drivers switch to different types of cars any time they want. An Uber driver with good ratings, Uber can measure the quality of his or her driving (not driving too fast, etc), should be able to drive all types of cars from cheap interesting electric, hybrid, to more luxurious cars even to a Tesla, all these cars should be provided by Uber. If they provide and pay for the car, then they may perhaps take a 30-35% share of all rides, just hopefully not more. A rider should have an option to pick which exact make of car to pick him or her up, feel like an Audi? Feel like a Mercedes? Feel like riding on the back seat in a Cadillac? want to ride passenger in a Ferrari? Uber should provide all these options in every city! I think Uber should be nice and take a smaller share.

I drove a hundred rides for UberX to fact-check whether a middle-of-the-pack driver can make $90,000 a year. This is what I...

A ton of delicious healthy looking/tasting vegetarian-only food as an all-you-can-eat Buffet, I like the fake meats in nice sauce with fried rice, but there are tons of much more healthy Asian vegetarian things, and all the efforts you put into eating the healthy food, you can cancel by unlimited ice cream, cakes, chocolate covered fruits and soda if you want. The normal price per person is 770TWD, they close every day at 9PM.

Simple. Get the Goat from Nisyros and the Elephant Eye for desert with a 1L mineral water. The waitress recommended me those and it was really delicious but it'll cost you 23.50€ without the tip (15€ Goat dish, 6€ Elephant Eye desert and 2.50€ 1L mineral water), which is a bit more than a 2.50€ chicken or pork Gyros from the street.
