A 100k idea, not something meant to make anyone insanely rich. But, well, you never know. If people like these I’ll keep posting all the weird ideas I have. I do not know if these ideas already exist, nor do I stake claim to the fungibility of the idea. However, if you build it, get me an early invite. I’m going to try to post up a 100k idea each week.
Grandmas love sending email forwards, inspirational photos, powerpoints (wtf?), religious stuff, stuff about supporting our troops. So why not give them a place to do this?
Introducing Grandma mail: The world’s most simple email system, with over 50,000 forwardable emails baked-in.
A simple large-button UI built for grandma’s who wear reading glasses.
Four simple functions:
A gigantic gallery of forwardable emails : cat pictures, dog pictures, religious forwards, uplifting quotes. You sign your grandma up for categories she likes and she’ll get a new email each day from each category.
WRITE and SEND – Would function like any normal email editor. Except everything is in large text. A super simple photo adder, with a search bar, and giant photos they click and it gets added.
OOPS button – Undoes whatever they just did, and explains what it undid in simple english.
SOS – Sends an alert to the Techie Grandchild, daughter-in-law whoever is the families go-to computer person. This sends an IM, and email with a link that lets you see the exact screen your Grandma is on. It’s like a screenshare of their email where you can guide your grandma and make whatever change/fix is needed.
It offers a safe environment: blocks out all types of email scams that prey on grandmas/grandpas like Nigerian princes, people in distress, anything that could even be considered fishy.
New features: Automatic Snopes true/false analysis.
