I have many ideas. Many. Some of these ideas I carefully tend to, some I set free for others to run with. Those I set free live here.

Idea 3: My Cloud Mag
Not sure if something similar exists.
Despite all the online alternatives offered to us, a lot of us still read magazines.
The idea for a app to collect, store and bookmark your favourite articles are as follows:
You scan the barcode of the magazine.
You enter the page number and select the topic you would like to file it under from a pre-populated dropdown box e.g., photography.
The selected pages gets added to an online storage/sorting cloud for all your favourite magazine articles.
Categorization, sharing, posting to other social sites and all the rest be done via either a website or a mobile app.
You will need the buy-in from major publishing houses to make it viable but I am sure they can market it as a "transitional product" to move their magazine customers online given the surety that magazines as we know it are edging towards extinction.
