“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.” — Robert A. Heinlein

My Most Top 10 Ideas: http://tinyurl.com/3xqfnn

iPhone app ideas (many of which may already be out there, but which might benefit from some interface improvements):
slave-flash unit
Basic Signal Generator
Binary-Byte Representor (e.g. 17 = [oxxxxoxx] 255 = [oooooooo]) Plus Logic Gates
Tone Dialler
Sandwich Callibrator
Prime Number Informationi(s|z)er
A proper dice-roller where the 3d dice actually roll!
Accelerometer-driven sound generator (i.e. a light-saber simulator that works properly)
Big Fat Logic Box - build up complex nested AND, OR, XOR statements using the cute graphical interface, fill in the answers and get a result - save and share your logic branches, use them to make a robot jump around, or something.
