Alright /g/, let's hear those startup ideas. I want results.
>>
It'd be an app for your phone with a simple "on/off" icon for your homescreen.
Whenever you had a boner, you would turn it on. When it retreated, switch back to off.
Basically, the app would use your phone's GPS to place the location of you and your boner on a world/local map. You'd be able to see how many people in the world currently have boners.
You'd also be able to see large clusters of boners in your area and be like "whoa...I better get down there. Something's going on that's giving everyone a boner".
Facebook/Twitter integration would be a must.
You could track friends' boners so you could shoot them a text like "congrats on the boner" and collect stats for yourself and others, e.g. boner frequency, boner duration, prime boner time.
You'd probably also want bluetooth or NFC to alert you of boners within 100ft of you so you know to knock before walking in a room and getting an eyeful of boner.

here's a billion dollar idea. a Linux computer for the mainstream. take a linux distro, put it into a powerful rig with a -clean aesthetic- and -allow it to communicate with android phones- (answering calls, texts, etc) and load up the computer with open-source productivity suites. bada bing, bada bang, you've literally ruined apple's monopoly on the clean, connected, and user friendly PC

seriously you guys, think of all the people you know that have android phones, and think of how many people you know would love an Apple but hate the Apple hype.

>Pooper. A social network for poop enthusiasts. After you poop and before you wipe, you take a picture of your poop and share with the world.
>It is like instagram for shit. Maybe call it shitstagram. Anyway, sexual fluids or items won't be allowed. Also no including yourself in the photo or even the reflection in the water. It will just be the poop, the water, and the ceramic around it. Poops in nature are also allowed.
>You can like, dislike, and report other people's poops. Obviously most people will stay anonymous.
>Poop colouring edible tablets will be advertised. Also foods that make your shit runny, or full of nuts. The kids will love it.
>Premium accounts could post short vids and 4K images.

Today's youth are nasty and like to do things ironically. My startup will be a fad for 4 months. In those 4 months I will make 200,000$ after all expenses, but more importantly my notoriety will earn me future jobs as a consultant. My main challnges will be play/app store rejectig my app, and cracking hard on people who post nudity and non poop images in general. I will have to make the app to require the phone number of the user and promise to keep it secret unless I have to report it to the FBI. That warning should scare off most trolls, but on other hand it will scare off normal users who worry their identity will be exposed.

>Who is this mysterious target audience?
if we're talking about gnome/gtk then it's old people that have never used a computer before and are easily confused at anything slightly technical such as hidden files/folders
>even Linux enthusiasts often complain about the existing DE designs
you're right, and I'm one of them, but again we're not the target audience - friendly reminder that traditional desktop paradigms are dying and phone/tablets are going to be dictating the industry for decades to come

>>63354280
technical engineering design isn't what was being talked about but that is awful when it comes to mainstream desktop environments too, and while graphical/design inconsistency is a legitimate issue it's not necessarily a pressing one so long as it isn't breaking the ux in that context, pic related is from a preview build afaik but you get the idea

Can't get laid and want to off yourself? Lifetime supply of hookers in Vegas / Amsterdam. Incapable of getting a job? You get a lifetime no-show position at some top-tier company with a bitchin' title and comfy salary. Hate the degeneracy of your society? You get a private island and a couple million to bootstrap a new society. Every contestant has shirt cams attached to them. The best part is that most of the time no one survives to claim the prize. at first no one will sponsor the show, but after advertisers see the view count no one will give a shit.

Instead of a wifi bike pump, make wifi-enabled tire valves or innertubes that charge via rotation (like TPMS sensors in cars) and sell them with a regular pump with a proprietary valve that fits on the cap so you can watch your pressure on your phone while you pump the tire, but can't use a regular pump on that tire without an adapter. The pressure can also be monitored while the bike is in motion.

As an entrepreneur this is a disturbing fact i've come to realize. My startup has made 4 apps, 3 of them were very serious and well thought out with months of planning, development and investment funding. Apps that were created to actually benefit humanity and be useful. Fourth app is a semi-popular meme generator we made over a period of 5 days for a startup hackathon competition that we didn't win and it's made back all investors money + a ton of profit for me and vested employees.
