OK, before I get to today’s idea, I just have to give a little credit where credit is due. I just got a chance to play with Hulu.com, the new You-Tube-For-Network-TV site. Despite all the negative press around this, I have to say, it is ridiculously awesome. The interface is intuitive and fun to use without being gimmicky, and the best part is that all of the shows started full-screen streaming within several seconds of being clicked. The ads are non-intrusive, skipping around the video was easy. All in all, it’s still early but I can easily see this thing being huge. Like, get rid of your monthly cable bill huge. Anyway, on to the idea.
Today’s idea is pretty basic. It’s a Facebook app where you can import your Amazon wish list and give gift suggestions to specific friends and family. For instance, I could drag a picture of my mom onto my wish list item of Guitar Hero 3, a picture of my dad onto the new 80 GB Zune (coming tomorrow!). For the rest of my friends or family, I could just share out the entire list and they’d be able to secretly mark items off the list once they are purchases (similar to a wedding registry, so you don’t end up with duplicate gifts).
I’m in second place with just one day left – please check out my idea over at Cambrian House and cast a vote to help me win: http://www.cambrianhouse.com/idea/idea-promoter/ideas-id/VyfFE0D/. Thanks!
