All of these are random "what ifs" I often think about. They are in no particular order and while some may provoke thought the chances are that many will just seem strange. Have fun! What if we actually had flying cars like all of the futuristic movies predicted? Is anyone even working on it? What if there was a Dr. Sues themed casino in Vegas? Wouldn't that be awesome? I think about this one a lot more than I should due to the fact it is hard to run out of fun ideas for a place like that! Imagine, green eggs and ham at the buffet, what would the cocktail waitresses wear? The shape of the pool, the shows, a super funky night club, crazy slot machines, it goes on and on. What if Twitter was only 70 characters? Would we just Tweet more frequently? What if Microsoft's marketing department or product development teams suddenly "get it"? What if WiMax actually happens nationwide? What if the USA stops caving to the carrier companies and is allowed to catch up to internet speeds with the rest of the world? What if the Red Wings done win the Stanley Cup this year? Answer: I will be completely distraught. What if the large content providers finally embrace technology and figure out other ways to make money than embracing a 1950's business model? What if Google actually does something useful with Google Voice? I have the service, love it but hate that I can't invite anyone else since they took it over from Grand Central. What if you could have a virtual address you manage online that is tied into the post office and other delivery services? Just think, you wouldn't have to change your address on a 100 different things if you move, just update where your stuff routes to from your virtual address by changing it online. What if internet speeds get fast enough and wireless has enough saturation to make cloud computing a useful reality? I tell you, I would love it. all of my content available all the time from anywhere and from any device? Ah YES!!! What if new babies were born with Facebook profiles and Twitter IDs instead of social security numbers? What if smart people actually designed the boarding process for the airlines? What if it were illegal for the airlines to "oversell" a flight? shouldn't it be? Think about it. If I sold the same used car to three different people I would get thrown in jail but if the airlines sell the same seat to 10 people it is perfectly acceptable? Unreal. (Can you tell I have been flying a lot lately?) What if auto makers finally got smart and just put an iPhone dock in the dashboard? Apple just does it better, why spend all the money developing crappy navigation systems and horrible interfaces when the iPhone does it all and does it right? Well, enough what ifs. I could go on forever with these. Maybe I am better off actually answering these questions instead of simply posing them. Hmmm, food for thought.
