    I had a vision last night in which I saw the future of computing. It did not have a mouse, a keyboard or even a monitor. I BELIEVE THAT IT WILL CHANGE COMPUTING FOREVER! I would really hate for Microsoft to get to it first.

    Who do I call about my futuristic computer vision?
    Or do I just wait 15 years for them to figure it out, all along the way saying "I knew that was coming"?

    Call up the patent office, get your idea patented, then fly down to cupertino and ask to speak with someone about your idea. Bring some mockups that you can give them, and email some pictures before you go.

    The US Patents Office!

    And make sure that you quote "Boy have I patented it" to every person you discuss it with!

    Get a patent then talk to Steve Wozniak! If there is anyone with experience in that sort of thing, its him! :)

    Patent it.

    Make a working prototype, with documentation of how it works and statistics showing it's success.

    Sell it to the highest bidder: Get hold of Apple, M$, Google, Oracle, etc. and let the Moneybags bid against each other.
