Googlent Green. Seven billion people crowded onto a tiny planet, while nearly a billion go hungry? The solution seems pretty clear. Create an environmentally friendly snack food that's both delicious and nutritious, while simultaneously ensuring you'll always be able to find a parking spot when you really need one. I'll bet Google is already working on an algorithm to separate the eaters from the eaten. (Fat and stupid? Front and center, please.)
Gtime. A time machine -- duh! Employing faster-than-light neutrinos, Google engineers will be able to go back in time to alter history so that products like Google Buzz and Google Wave never happened. Fortunately, Googlers will be forbidden from going into the past to do evil (unless it involves Facebook).
The Germinator. Eventually, of course, Google will invent relentless robotic killing machines, which it will then send back through the Gtime machine to prevent Mark Zuckerberg's parents from ever meeting -- defeating the anti-Google revolution before it has a chance to begin.
If you had Google's money and talent, what would you invent? Post your wacky ideas below or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
