Comment re: Eyeball remote = nole me tangere. This is one of the stupider applications of technology around (excepting the case of tactile-handicapped persons). One should really make a compendium of stupid applications of technology, e.g. those durn things at the stores on which one "signs" with a stylus, thus producing a signature that is either illegible or looks nothing like the valid object...the "eyeball remote" would be a top entry on the list. Don't misunderstand where I am coming from...I am a functioning scientist, not a Luddite. I just get angry to see non-useful bells and whistles vended just to make someone some do-re-mi. Other entries for this list would surely be the "ding-dong" that reminds you to put on your seat belt (for 15 seconds after you have done so automatically), or perhaps that 3rd brake light in the middle of the rear view window.
