Submission + - Custom Time: Gmail's new email feature

Anemophilous Coward writes: Wow, what a great new Gmail feature, you now are able to backdate your email you send to people. That way it will chronologically appear in the correct place you want it to within their inbox. You even have the option to have it marked as read already. Even more reason to make use of the wonder that is Gmail. Plenty of great testimonies to its usage and explanations into how the technology works can be found at the link above.

Submission + - WiiMote used to control MS Virtual Earth 3D

Anemophilous Coward writes: Someone has developed yet another fun use for the WiiMote. From the Intro: Virtual Earth is the 3D interface to Microsoft's Live Maps service. Normally this control is loaded via the web browser and allows interaction with a keyboard, mouse, and Xbox 360 controller. In this article, we will take the Virtual Earth control out of the web browser, use it in a WinForms application, and control it with a Nintendo Wii Remote (Wiimote) There is an included video link as well showing the work in action. An older article from last October, but still quite cool.
