The 8 ball used to be one of those toys that children up to teenagers loved playing. There was even a time when even adults used it whenever they feel that they do not know what decisions they would be making. When the 8 ball lost its appeal, it became scarce and hard to see in toy stores. It is a good thing that it has come back in the form of a windows 7 gadget that you can just place on the side of your desktop. The simple interface is easy to understand and it works just as well as your old 8 ball toy.
