I’ve been thinking about the iPhone App Store and the hundreds of thousands of Apps for free or for sale. But the neatest Apps I can imagine haven’t been invented yet. So I set out to make my own. Using Photoshop, I built an image from parts I stole from the web. The idea was to make the image look like an iPhone App. I saved the image to the iPhone and displayed it as a photo.
There are lots of Star Trek references in the photo: 1) Replicator refers to the Food Replicators on board the Enterprise; 2) The toppings are from the Klingon cookbook. Inquiring minds can google them to find out; 3) Note the Starfleet command emblem in the background; 4) The bullet points by the toppings are Klingon Symbols; and 5) Jean-Luc Picard's "Make It So" denoting confirming the order and in this case, make the pizza just so.
Next, I had my wife hold the iPhone like she was about to push the “Make It So!” button. And the rest is history. This was fun!
I’m thinking voters of a certain age, with a certain affinity for Star Trek, might resonate with this – all 17 of you. If I can just get 17 10’s, the rest will take care of themselves, I’ll have a ribbon, and Bob’s your uncle. So Trekkers – Make It So!

Ah, two more Trekkers ... still falling short of the 17 10's I need.
