iPad gets a real, physical analog stick ... kinda

Sick of having to touch your touchscreen? Well, those days are over, son! The folk at Fling have used science to their advantage and released a physical analog stick that attaches to the screen via a suction cup. Yes, that's the most absurd thing ever, but it apparently works!

Just schlunk the little bugger wherever it's needed on the screen and it will transfer your thumb movements to the screen, keeping your iPad free of the grease and sweat and bits of pube crumbs that are trapped under your fingernails. 

It costs $25 and pre-orders open on January 6. I wouldn't personally buy one, but I'd accept one as a gift. Which is actually my attitude toward the iPad itself, so ...
