Bad Idea #12

We can track our packages, right? Why can’t we track the truck that has our package on it? I know that there are some trucks out there that have a GPS system on them that can be used by the company that owns/operates them to show where they are, why can we have access to that? 
We’d only need access if our package is on the truck and access gets cancelled once the package is delivered. Or have the delivery guy scan the next package he is delivering, that gives temporary access to the recipient, again once the package is delivered, access goes away.
I’m sitting here waiting for a package to arrive and the weather sucks, I would like to know when the truck is in the area delivering so I can be here to grab the package before it gets too wet. 
I have a dog who loves to bark when the doorbell rings, can’t I get a notification from the shipping company when the truck is within a few miles of my home so I can grab the package before the delivery guy can ring my doorbell and keep the god from waking up my kid? 
Let’s work this one out folks!

Something for Instagram or Snapchat to think about. Geo-specific filters for the camera on your phone. 

Imagine you’re at the zoo taking pictures and you get to choose a filter showing you in the lion or monkey cage. Or if you are at a theme park and you could make your own souvenir picture. Maybe you are at your local sports stadium, again you could add your self to a team picture or add a team jersey or hat to your picture. 

We have the technology, let’s make it happen.

How about and app that works with your map app of choice that tells you what radio stations are available on your road trip and when you should switch from one to another. 

Just plot your route and you get your directions and a list of stations. “In three quarters of a mile switch to 103.7.” Make it customizable so you can pick your favorite genre for the whole trip.
