I've seen something like this before, I think Apple did something very similar a couple of years ago before evolving to the track pad. It's good too see Microsoft at the cutting edge though: The Microsoft Touch Mouse Demo
I wish we had a window cleaner that was into music. Ours insists on football chat everytime I answer the door to him. He's never dettered by the fact that I can't join in. Apparently England are playing tonight and the friendly they played a few weeks ago was terrible.
I've been given a bag of conkers today by my mum. Apparently if you put them in the corners of your rooms it keeps the spiders away (there was a fist sized one hurtling across our living room yesterday!). I've tried looking on the internets for scientific proof of whether this somewhat eccentric pastime actually works, the words "wife", "old" and "tale" seem to come up quite a lot. Does this really work? My Granny says so and she knows loads of stuff!
