Take Big Decisions off your Mind with Paul’s Pick
After being eliminated embarrassingly early on in this year’s World Cup, the English were consoled by the rise of a new star in football: Paul the Octopus. Supposedly hailing from Weymouth, Paul correctly predicted the outcomes of all of Germany’s matches and proceeded to foretell Spain to be the overall winners as the tournament reached its climax in July.
If you would like Paul to have more of a say in your day-to-day life, XDA member TangoChen has created your ideal application. Paul’s Pick is a simple application for Windows Mobile which allows you to input the possible choices for the decision you have to make, and then leave an animated Paul to do the deciding for you. If his track record is anything to go by, your life choices are safe in his hands!
You can find the .cab file in the application thread.

Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
