It's pretty simple, really: these "clicking cursor" oven mitts (which aren't clicking, but whatever) would make a completely, mind-numbingly awesome addition to any gadget-lover's kitchen. We want them now. Too bad they're not available... yet.[Via OhGizmo!]

That "Wiimote acceleration values" vid was great and all, but those graphs get old after like 10 seconds. That's why we're glad to see somebody base an actual Windows cursor control on the snazzy technology from the Wii Linux folks behind that first tech demo. Unfortunately, the tilt sensing sens...

Rob Griffiths at Macworld has stumbled upon an advanced edit mode in iPhoto 6 that offers some advanced functions when using the Retouch or Red-Eye tools. When using either of these tools, you can hit ctrl-caps lock-9 (yes, I said caps lock) to switch on these specialized cursors that allow you to f...
