RE: [Sigia-l] Click that eye
It moves too fast. If I make a mistake and mouseover a link on the way
to another link, I can't go back without clicking.

So you don't like www.dontclick.it? :-)
I don't know how this particular system works, but in general, you can
use finely-tunable statistical timing methods to "learn" how a specific
user acquires targets and initiates a clickless click and create a
personalized signature, as it were. (Financial industry uses a similar
method of timing how fast you type your password and patterns therein to
example.) On a cleanly hierarchical system like the iPod interface I bet
one can get pretty good results that way.
Still, sounds a bit of wishful thinking, innit?
