'fingers only' ones will be encouraged.

Free Idea # 142 - The making of movie

Compile DVDs of the material normally used as
'extras' and sell them to moviegoers as they
leave the cinema. People could watch out-takes
and 'making of' features while the main movie
is still fresh in their minds.

Free Idea # 141 - Postpaid furniture payments

Arrange for delivery drivers to take payments for
furniture and white goods such as stoves and
refrigerators when they drop them off. This might
encourage stores to make deliveries when they say
they will rather than earning interest on
customers' money while leaving them waiting for
weeks on end.

Free Idea # 138 - Publish reviews of newspapers

Free Idea # 137 - Nationwide network movement of vehicles

Create a nationwide network of sensors which track
the movement of vehicles. All vehicles would be
fitted with a unique signal and the sensors would
be able to trace exactly where a vehicle has been.
Only the Police would have access to the data
which would be used to trace stolen autos or to
verify alibis.

Free Idea # 136 - Itemize domestic power bills

Itemize domestic power bills. Seeing the expense
of keeping equipment on standby or lighting empty
rooms may help people change their energy habits.
