Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Modern airplanes are equipped with a “stick-shaker” that vibrates the
control stick with increasing harshness as the airplane approaches a
stalled configuration. The hope is the pilot will feel the shaking and
correct the airplane’s attitude before the stall occurs.
My work computer has a time-out safety feature. If I don’t touch the
mouse every so often, it logs me out. Which would make sense if I only
worked on-line, but I have lots of other stuff to do off-line as well.
I’m forever logging back in. I’m stalled.
I need a stick-shaker for my mouse.
It’d also be a great feature on credit cards.
