In the spotlight: Turn your cursor into a highlighter

It can be difficult to effectively illuminate matter on a computer screen when you're making a presentation, or running a demo, or collaborating with a colleague, or going over documents with a client . . . Well, you get the idea.

But, did you know that you can turn your cursor into a spotlight (and then some), in order to run more effective screencasts?

For Mac users, Boinx Software's Mouseposé 3 will do the trick. For Windows users, Presentation Assistant's Presentation Pointer offers similar tools. Certain presentation softwares, as well, including TechSmith's Camtasia, offer cursor spotlight and related options within their suites.
