How can we comment to people's ideas? There is a person "pacesetterplus" who wanted an idea to directly scan documents to Google Docs from a normal scanner. I know a freeware tool which can do this. But there is no option to comment there.

Please give some commenting feature, like GetSatisfaction, where people to suggest and comment also.

The product ideas blog is awesome. I want to _donate_ my time to google, if treated seriously, to help with a project I have in my head. The tech revolution is yet to come. It happens when we get the mobile experience off the mobile device. The device must process every sentence I say and every sentence I hear, and there must be at least one transitory pairing protocol underlying the devices (I call it CAP: conversation awareness protocol) so they can negotiate data transfers as the users talk.

User story 1: While at the grocery store, Mike met a girl named Sally. They talked it up for a little bit, and while they did, their mobile devices briefly paired using CAP. When Mike asked, "could I call you some time," Sally responded, "Sure; have my cell number." Their devices negotiated the transaction automatically, creating a contact on Mike's phone for Sally including her telephone number and, as personal notes, anything she told him that he would be wise to remember (what she does for a living, that she has a brother also named Mike, or her birthday, etc.). Nobody had to touch their mobile devices to get in better contact.

User story 2: I called my wife on the way home from work. She said, "oh, could you get eggs, milk and diapers on your way home?" When I responded, "sure," my device automatically added a shopping list with today's date, a matching calendar entry including the store I'm most likely to visit, and dumped the route to my car's nav system so I could see on-screen that I had a new destination.

User story 3: Six executives get together to discuss reorganization of responsibilities between their groups. The group secretary's device transcribed the whole conversation and linked the transcript to everyone's calendars and each individual's device made a list of what was asked of them and what they actually agreed to. Everyone left the meeting confident that everyone else knew what their new responsibilities were.

User story 4: While at home, my wife said "i'd like to make some chicken fried steak for my family." her device, fully aware of the home inventory, informed her that she has the ingredients and can expect the whole thing to take two hours from start to finish.

User story 5: I sent you, John, an important memo just by calling you on the office phone and saying, "John, I'd like you to read a copy of today's emergency memo."

The bottom line is the tech revolution will start as soon as we get our eyes off the screens and back onto what's important, and when the devices start actually 'living' alongside us instead of interrupting our lives.

I want my mobile device listening to every conversation I have, regardless of the privacy concerns (any time I want privacy I'll turn it off).

I can think of at least ten more good user stories that everyone would agree make this the best possible option for google to explore -- once we take the mobile experience to the personal level, productivity and prosperity will soar -- especially because a great deal of the 'logistics tax' we pay in organizations will be blended right out of existence.

I spent over 20 years developing consumer products, which I sold to almost every major retailer in the United States. Today, I am a marketing consultant to those who wish to take their product ideas national.

What I find is that most of my clients think they want the big box retailers. My job is to help them penetrate new markets, and close distribution deals.

i am not sure whether its already given by other or not that my idea about the google places is: google places should recognize the network tower automatically and locate the device via internet then make it possible to publish automatically if the device is enabled to do so by users.
