Ideas are amazing. We don’t know where they come from, and
when you get right down to it, we don’t really even know what they are. But we do know that we love
to hear your ideas and feedback about our products and service, so share if you feel inspired.
However, we can’t make any guarantees. We might already be working on the same thing, and if we
launch it, we don’t want you to feel disappointed. Please read on.
