Steve's app: Family Finder

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Steve called me from work yesterday to tell me about a dream he had the night before.

See, we watch Oprah here at the Hunt house, and we saw the one about genealogy and how Brooke Shields discovered she's basically part-princess.

So that got Steve-man thinking...

His dream went like this.  He was walking in the mall (it was very specific) and his iPhone (we don't even have iPhones, but for the sake of the dream, he did.) started ringing.  He looked at it and it said, "You're walking by your fourth cousin right now."  Meanwhile, someone near him had a ringing iPhone as well, saying the same thing.  They look up at each other and are united in an embrace.  Or something like that.

So, he plans on patenting "Family Finder" and having you submit your blood sample to iPhone - if you want this app of course... no mandatory blood drawings - and maybe a picture and then you'll be notified every time you walk past someone you're related to because your info is now in the phone.

Fancy that!  My man's always thinking!

Don't steal his idea!  It's going to make him famous!

  1. It's a mix between Ancestry.com, putting chips in your dogs, and ATT's family finder (which is basically just a way of tracking your teenage daughter down when she's on a date). But I like it!

  7. I would never go to West Virginia with this app. Or southern Ohio. Or Northern Virginia. Ok, I would be a shut in. Too scared to see m extended gene pool.
