Muahaha... Finally had the initiative to set this lil proggy up and get it rockin' :D

The only thing I've noticed is that the screens scroll backwards to the way I smack, I think I can change that in the DM options though. I'll hafta have a play with it later on.

Have a look!

It uses the onboard motion sensor. The sensor is primarly used to lock the hard drive in case the laptop is dropped. If the platter is still spinning when the lappy hit the ground the arm collides with the platter and uber bad things happen :)

But of course, there are much more fun things that can be done with the motion sensor. AKA iAlertU, SmackBook, MacSaber, etc.
