Use your Mac to detect earthquakes

Link: Use your Mac to detect earthquakes
Description:: Earthquake scientists want to borrow your laptop or maybe a little space in your basement or garage.
Almost anyone can participate by equipping laptop computers with special software or installing quake sensors at home.
"If they can provide scientific data that can prepare us for events in the future, then that's extremely important," said Tom Jordan of the Southern California Earthquake Center at the University of Southern California.

So I am to leave my Mac Laptop (a relatively new one, going on the fact that it needs to be equipped with the SMS) in a basement and just let it sit there until an earthquake occurs?
Sounds cool, but, um, I was using the laptop...

Maybe our iPhones should all be tied into a network. If a large number of accelerometers in the same area report the same movement, it's an earthquake!
We'll have to make sure not to mislead it by holding our iPhones while dancing.
Oh do pay attention 007. In the wrong hands, this cylindrical 12-core Mac Pro with three 4K displays, FirePro graphics, and Thunderbolt 2 could be very dangerous.
