iPad Mounts, Anti-Flirting, And Other Stories We Didn't Post

So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn’t possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn’t worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.

Cat and Mouse? Cat Throws Mouse

It’s amazing what a man can do with a Canon 5D Mark II and an itchy trigger. Especially if that man is Angelo DeSantis, and he’s standing in front of a cat that’s using Stuart Little as a discus. [Colossus]

Transformer Prime Tablet May Be on Hold Until December

If you’re the type of person who will literally explode into ash if you find out a major quad-core Android 4.0 tablet’s rumoured release has been pushed back by a rumoured few weeks, PLEASE GOD STOP READING. OK, so, for the rest of you, yeah, might have to hold off a few weeks on that Asus Transformer Prime. [Android Guys]

LoCreep: The Rudest Way to Say “You’re Ugly”

Time was, a girl could just write a fake number down on a bar napkin and call it a day. Or, you know, just tell a guy she didn’t want to give him phone access. But for the particularly cruel, LoCreep gives women access to a fake number that directs the unfortunately gentleman caller, as it were, to system that can transcribe voicemails and publish texts to Tumblr. There’s no backing for it yet, so it doesn’t exist in any appreciable scale. And honestly, who would fund it? [BetaBeat]

Excess, Thy Name Is Wall-Mounted motorised iPad Dock

Oh hello, not entirely practical but incredibly expensive way to put your iPad on a wall instead of your greasy clutches, where it belongs. For the privilege? $US1000 for portrait, $US1100 for landscape. Wait, it doesn’t even swivel? Lordy, this is even worse than I thought. [BornRich]

Left Behind is our daily collection of chaff we didn’t think was quite good enough to post on its own, and why.
