A Terrible New Tech Idea for Bars

This will go bad real fast. Customers playing DJ in a bar playing whatever songs they want through their smart phones. Ouch.

My idea to end all SPAM texts and phone calls.

UPDATE 2-24-16: HEY somebody did it!

The FCC is considering new ways to cut robocalls and SPAM texts.

My idea is to go back to the old concept of collect calling. You could get a 900 number for your phone. When people call it says “the surcharge for this call will be zero if the person you are calling presses #1 within 20 seconds of answering the call, otherwise the charge for this call will be $9.99 plus tax. You can hang up now or charge will go into effect in 5 seconds at the time of the first ring.” This could not be blocked.  The phone company and the customer could split the proceeds from junk phone callers who don’t hang up fast enough.  If you charge a friend by mistake you’d have a couple of days to go online and reverse the charge.
For texts the texter would get 1 free shot and a warning. If the recipient does not respond to the second text they would be charged for that text and every text after from the same trunk system or IP.

PHONE COMPANIES PLEASE STEAL MY IDEA! I’ll be the first one to sign up.

Would it impress your Valentine if a drone delivered your drinks?

A restaurant in Singapore is planning to experiment with drones delivering food and drinks within the restaurant. Read about it here at WaPo. Sounds messy to me, so what do you think?
