Americas most wanted: the self-cleaning garbage can

August 5, 2007 Inventors and entrepreneurs take note; a new study in the United States has revealed that Americans are craving new technology that would enable them to relinquish more of their household chores. This seem a little obvious, but the catch is finding someone to invent the laundry folding dryer or the self-cleaning garbage can to meet the growing demands on the wish list of time-poor consumers.

The Cleaning Innovations Survey conducted by SC Johnson discovered that a staggering 60 per cent of respondents would purchase (if available) a self-cleaning garbage can, whilst another 59 per cent would appreciate a stove top that has the ability to rid itself of food matter and stains every day. These requests, along with recent releases such as the Siemens shirt-ironing machine, are no longer whimsical ideas reserved for science-fiction novels or crazy invention TV shows.

AUGUST 15, 2007

Search is not the final word for all portal users.

"Even more important than Yahoo!'s first lead over Google is the trend of their scores moving in opposite directions," Larry Freed, president/CEO of ForeSee, said in a statement. "We may see a real turnaround for Yahoo! in the next year."

For some of us, however, it can go up and down. One day you might feel really on top of everything, great about yourself, unafraid to try anything.
