A Twitter feature: Read later to specific list functionality

I want to read that

Today, Twitter added a new feature to it great service; four photo’s to one tweet and tagging people (who than get a notification). It was Sofie Geyskens tweet that brought it to my attention and they seems also to be experimenting with a share functionality. But it’s not what I neccesarily want from twitter. The one I miss most is a simple read later to list functionality. I follow a lot of people who are sharing interesting content but I check twitter mostly on the go, meaning I don’t have much attention or time to read these interesting articles they post. Mostly, I favorite interesting content but I never go back to these to check them when I have more time…

The simple add to list functionality could be a fourth icon in the series of reply, retweet and favorite that opens a choice to add it to specific read later list.

So Twitter, follow me in this request, pleeeeaaaasse! 🙂

Battery walls exchange service.

Batteries Exchange Vending Machine

With modular systems on the rise, phones and tablets will be able to use the same parts in different brands of technology. I foresee a standardisation of batteries. And my next idea anticipates it with a technology parts sharing society;

Battery walls are vending machines with charged batteries. When you enter your old, you get a ‘new’, charged one. Every battery that gets returned gets checked on optimal life expectation. If it’s below a certain threshold, it will be recycled.

The business model works on very small subscription fees & a transaction cost. It could be placed at entrances of business parks, in office buildings, on parkings next to highways, high traffic consumer places, etc…
