Help me diagnose my automatic garage door opener weirdness

I have a two-car garage with a LiftMaster automatic garage door opener that is misbehaving and it's driving me crazy. It seems to be randomly just opening the door long after it is closed and I can't figure out why. I've seen the other questions about garage door openers but was hoping for some advice specific to my situation. [more inside]

My garage door opener is possessed. Help!

My garage door opener has been acting funny, but it's very intermittent, which of course drives me nuts. Every once in a while, about 1-2 seconds after the garage door closes, it'll open back up. Sometimes, if I just close it again, it'll stay closed. But lately, it'll take 5-6 tries until it'll stay shut. The garage door opener is a Genie Pro Stealth, and I've already tried adjusting the limiters and such on the opener, and it actually worked perfectly for about 6-7 months, but lately it started acting up again. I tried adjusting the limiters again, and of course it worked for 2 days, then started reversing again. Does anybody have any idea what might be causing this and how I can fix it?

Is The Rabbit wine opener any good?

So I've been struggling with the christmas present issue - What to get for my parents? I've decided on a Rabbit wine opener, but it has mixed reviews. Does anyone have this device or an equivalent wine tool?
