Of mice, and monkeys?

Engadget has compiled a list of stupid gadgets that should be avoided at all costs. There seems to be a particular focus on mice.

Like this one:

It sure is dumb. It’s a red piggy mouse. Some of them are quite cool. I would buy them. But I’m not sure why, or why they were ever invented. Like the Mouse Scale… for those people wanting to keep track of how much their hand weighs?

Luckily it comes with a cover for when your hands are feeling a little fat…

The real winner, as far as I’m concerned, is the USB powered “monkey” hand warmers.

For those looking for a little monkey magic – there’s a matching footwarmer. At $46US for the set – plus postage. A great Christmas present. Shame I live in the tropics.
