COOL: Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows

I didn’t think this was going to be as cool as it is but this Xbox Wireless Gaming Receiver">Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows (XP or Vista) is so wicked cool… you just have to buy one, particularly if you own an Xbox 360.  And at $16 from Amazon, there’s really no excuse not to.
 
What’s so special about this thing?  Well, it allows you to use Xbox 360 controllers on your laptop and while that might not sound like a big deal, try this:  Go to http://maps.live.com and turn on the 3D functionality.  You’ll discover that the Xbox 360 controller allows you to fly around in the 3D mapped world of maps.live.com.   What makes this so cool is that you can actually fly around cities like New York, San Francisco, Downtown Los Angeles, and Las Vegas with ease.
 
Really.  You can spend hours flying around touring the city.  All for just $16.
