Search for a new drug..

2004-05-04 01:20:54.476573+00 by meuon 5 comments

Huey Lewis and the News is singing: "I'm looking for a new drug.."

Well, actually not a drug.. I'm looking for a product or service that can be offered electronically that has real value. Why? Because a customer is offering an online product package of e-books in a pseudo-networking-marketing 'you too can be a sales rep' website. "Q" can sell anything, and has 400 plus really good sales associates that has proven that he can sell absolute dreck worth almost nothing for a premium price. My complaint, and "Q" admits it, is his product package sucks. I'm looking for something that either already exists, or that some enterprising Flutterbarian can create for a few grand that has some real world value.

While waiting for the bus home yesterday I was mulling over the potential usefulness of a service that translates text-message lingo (formerly chat lingo - you know, the stuff that goes like this: "gr8! c u l8r") into complete words and sentences.

My thinking is that it would allow one to be more mobile, yet still look professional to the person at the other end of the line.

I don't know enough about how the cell companies push data around to be able to answer that. My preliminary thoughts were about setting up some kind of online translation service, but that would probably only work if you were going to interface with people on IM[Wiki], e-mail or other standard Internet services.

I don't know how you'd do the re-routing, but that lets you send and receive SMS from a cell phone via a computer.
