New Microsoft Mouse Runs On Rugs, Cats

If you're having a difficult time finding a proper surface for your optical or track ball mouse, then you may want to consider purchasing Microsoft's shiny-blue Explorer mouse. Emitting a blue LED light, the Explorer is designed to "capture clearer, larger images, which should lead to better accuracy no matter what surface the mouse is on.”

The folks at PoPSci ran several tests on the Explorer to see how accurate it really is on any surface, and here's their conclusion: "The Explorer did better than promised. It worked not only on plush rugs and angry pets, but also on clear glass, one of the two surfaces Microsoft says it can’t handle. (It even tracked sometimes on the other near-impossible surface, a mirror.)"

The "angry pet" was the reviewer's cat, hence, the mouse can run on just about any surface. Perhaps even Swiss cheese. The Microsoft Explorer currently sells for around $100 USD. Thanks for the news tip, Billiamtoez.

Until today, Google's Reader program would automatically share any story a user wanted to share with their friends with anyone they had talked to on Google Talk. Now, users will explicitly be able to decide who gets to see their shared items when using Google Reader.

This is a good change and has been a long time coming. Go ahead and share those stories without worrying that anyone you shared a single message with on Google Talk isn't tracking the types of things you like to read.

The nail has finally been driven into the coffin on Scrabulous on Facebook. The popular Scrabble clone has been shut down for US and Canadian Facebook users by order of the Facebook overlords.

According to David Swain, a Facebook spokesman, Facebook "decided in the middle of the night to disable the application in the U.S. and Canada.”

“We’re trying to maintain just being a neutral platform," claims Facebook. This is odd to us, because being neutral suggests that Facebook wouldn't take any action between Scrabulous.com and Hasbro, which owns the rights to the original Scrabble game.
