AuB - Athlete micro-biome Bank
So a former soccor player is collecting athlete poop for human microbiome specimens. Since apparently high performance atheletes seem to have fairly different microbiomes from the average person, this is a source of interest for human biology. Potentially, this could lead to performance enhancement treatments, similar to fecal transplants that current move new gut bacteria into people with no/poor performing gut microbiomes.

This is whole tooth preservation, for later implantation. Apparently wisdom teeth are preferred as they can be reshaped into the shape of other teeth for re-implantation. This is effectively giving you mouth a spare tire. While the cells in the tooth are ideally preserved, the aim is not preservation of stem cells specifically though. Uses a special magnetic freezer tech developed in japan to supercool then instantaneously freeze the teeth for reduced cell damage.

NTT DoCoMo To Start Cellphone Banking Service, While KDDI Runs A Year Ahead | Asiajin
Expanding the multi-play, DoCoMo wants to be your payment processor and micropayment service, along with the commuter pass, video, and internet provider. Guess with poor projected ARPU and replacement rates dropping, mobile telecommunications companies need to dig their claws deeper into their customers. Somebody needs to build a viral opponent to this, something like an iPhone PayPal app. In teh case of Softbank, doing a JapanPost tieup along with apps for the iPhone and for Android would clearly kick DoCoMo in the knees, since virtually every japanese person has a postal bank account. Though by not having the money sit in their accounts temporarily, Softbank gets no interest revenue, unlike DoCoMo.
