Take Big Decisions off your Mind with Paul’s Pick

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.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles. If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about those articles, feel free to get in touch with me via PM using the URL above.
