Considering that colds often spread through touching surfaces that others touch, it would seem that Internet cafes would pose a health risk.

These would be disposable rubber gloves marketed toward either Internet cafes themselves or directly to the consumer. Perhaps available free, with advertisements and web addresses printed on the back.

       Next up: Anti-viral Internet Hat   

       Thinking about this idea further, Internet cafes are a bit unique in that they consist of people from all over the world (I only go to one when I travel, and just assume everyone else is like me) touching something with a large portion of their hands for an extended period.

       Have a nice life, bubble-boy.   

       Your health system is likely benefitting more than it's getting hurt.   

       But it's true that there is a market for products for bubble-boy type attitudes, so I'm not voting.
