StenotypeWhat's that thingy court reporters type on? I'm filing this under things you didn't know you wanted to know until you knew them. I'm fascinated about how the whole 22-key thing works - especially as looking at a picture the keys aren't even marked (and that's on the 'student' model). That's more l33t than that l33t keyboard that's been doing the rounds recently.

Interactive Simpsons' Home
Not really a point'n'click game as such, more a tour around the Simpsons' home, but I just had to include it after finding prank call #1 on the phone (my favourite from the show) [thanks Buster H].

Bang Bang
One of my favourite radio tunes of the moment in handy flash card format - Audio Bullys v that tune from Kill Bill (I think anyway, for some reason I still haven't seen that film yet). Click on the video link to get the full thing.

Switch Off
I'm not totally sure I understand this new switch campaign:

More people are interested in switching off their PCs & Macs than ever before. See why they made the change and how easy it was. Discover how compatible you are with other people. Learn about all the great ways getting out more will give you a better life. And understand how a simple outdoor activity can make your life easier and your possibilities endless.

I don't think my PC, or my Mac, has an "off switch".

The Asylum
In a choice of English, German and Italian languages, although definately written by Zee Germans, The Asylum, can be taken as either a very bizarre psychotherapy based point'n'click game (can you cure the patients?), or an elaborate way of selling plushie toys. Either way that crocodile is very cute [thanks Sunshine Cekala].

The Cave
Must every new film have a point'n'click game on it's web site? I hope so. Find your way around the spooky cave.

The Ringing
The horrors of traditional telephony are highlighted in this film advert for VoIP. I'll overlook the fact that network cabling looks stunningly like telephone cables, and is invariably more plentiful in your typical office, as it would slightly spoil the whole concept of the film [thanks nicki].

Dr. Stanley's House
Can you solve the mystery of what has happened at Dr. Stanley's House?

Normally when a point'n'click game is in a completely incomprehensible language (I think this one is Chinese), combined with, as in this case, the old <tab> key trick not working, I get slightly disheartened, but this one is very addicitive and I managed to get all the way through to the end. The great graphics and real sense of a hide'n'seekery carry you through, along with a suitably spooky soundtrack. Being able to read Chinese would almost be cheating. My one top tip is that the key colours match the doors they go with, despite the fact they all look like car long did I spend with my first key trying to get into the car? Watch out for the twist in the tale at the end as well...[cheers ron].

The Jedi Song
The Jedi resort to online viral advertising tactics with the Jedi Song to gain new recruits. Surely mind tricks should be enough on their own to persuade people to join though? Perhaps it is a mind trick - "La La LaLaLa" is certainly stuck in my head.

Ps. Is it just me or is there lots of Star Wars related stuff on the internet at the moment? It's almost like they released another film or something...

Fragile Circus
The surreal world of The Fragile Circus begs the questions - "huh?" and "what the?". To be filed under cool but weird.

Deka 2
If you get stuck due to not understanding Japanese whilst playing Deka 2 at least you can shoot everything in sight as you're armed in this point'n'click game...

42 Below Britain
I'm not really certain I should find this Kiwi view of Britain funny, but it contains a few humorous home truths [thanks(?) phillydad].
