    i was surfing the internet when i saw this pic http://blog.wired.com/cultofmac/
    and it gave me an idea. an apple nightlight! you know, for kids! (anyone get that reference?) it would look something like that picture, with less aluminum. it could also be useful just for lighting areas that are not very visible. what do you think?

    So... it's a nightlight. Not really that much of an invention.

    Or did I miss sarcasm?

    i'd love it if my light crapped out. i have to place things in front of it to block it because it's annoying.

    Ditto. My iBook annoys me whenever I try to go to sleep and it's in the room. So damn bright... and the clamshell design makes it very difficult to block without duct tape.

    You should take your idea to the Dragons' Den, but I think I could guess correctly at the outcome. ;)

    Great movie!

    On a totally unrelated note, I checked out the article that inspired you and did anyone else notice the prizes these folks won?!

    Wow! :eek:

    In answer to your question of your location, i would guess at the UK since the new series has just started.

    I saw that too and thought, 'what can i make that could win me a prize like that???', and the answer is....

    I'm not creative enough.
