>From the BBC:
Reading your mouse movements
A website that can read your body language and know what you want before you
have even clicked on anything may sound like science fiction.
But this is what researchers in the US are working on.
A team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston, US, say
they have developed a way to record mouse movements on a page and learn how
people behave when they are on the internet.
They found that certain movements of the mouse are common, allowing them to
predict how someone uses the web.
Could the >next< person to discover a useful technology, please promise
never to tell MIT about it?
