It seems to me that any company whose business involves providing secure web apps to external users (who aren't using devices specially trusted by the company providing the service) ought to be able to provide its corporate applications on the same basis.
One of the biggest reasons for BYOD is so you don't need to deal with the crappy supplied hardware of your employer and you can bring your own. I'm pretty sure that Google employees get their pick of hardware so this would remove at least one big reason for BYOD.
A bearer-backed market basket currency (rather, the ability for anyone to create a digital bearer token currency as a service; billions of currencies, and realtime exchanges to determine prices and exchange currencies at transaction time) is my #1 idea for a project. Unfortunately not really a path to profitability, so I'll do something more mundane first.
I'm glad I ducked out of e-gold (we were building a digital bearer currency backed by e-gold, in partnership with them) before the e-gold prosecutions started. Kind of sobering talking to the lawyers 10 years later and seeing what pain I missed.
Unlikely to bleed to death while conscious. However, if the impact causes unconsciousness (highly likely from head trauma), a bleed-at-not-otherwise-concerning rate is going to be a real problem.
Humans need watchdog processors. Even if we have to build them and add them. Something which watched your vitals in the background and alarmed when they became critical would be great.
"Heart attack" was probably someone extrapolating from "middle aged guy dies during exercise". Unless you actually had M.E. information beyond that, the natural assumption would be heart attack, and you'd be right 90% of the time.
This is why I'm excited about the development of the Apple watch and similar ubiquitous metrics. From the heart rate alone you could determine many significant cardiac events, e.g. A-fib, PSVT, heart blocks...
Yeah -- pervasive monitoring gives you three awesome things:
1) Per-user baselines (e.g. my natural temperature is 36C) in a non-clinical environment (to avoid "white coat" syndrome; from working in a hospital, my BP spikes to 140/90 when I'm around incompetent providers, and is 120/80 normally)
2) Great longitudinal measurements to see changes over time
The normal version of this is "employee assistance program", but that's mainly designed for people with drug/alcohol/etc. problems. Often provided by the health insurance companies, or other benefits. It probably is paid for with <$1/employee/month by the employer.
Ugh. I can't imagine there being enough benefit to a multilingual website, especially for a b2b or technically proficient clientele, to make the overhead of translation worthwhile -- it's a cost, but much more importantly, a speed/complexity tax whenever you change anything.
If I'm going to get a shitty automatic translation, I'd prefer to do it myself on the fly with Google, vs. having a bad version actually provided by the website.
