    Hello,
    I'm currently a PC user but I will for sure switch to Mac as soon as the new MBP are released.

    I heard that the MBP have a feature that allows to detect a fall in order to block the hard disk to prevent data loss.

    How is this feature called ? Could you direct me to more information about it ?

    Thanks,
    regards,
    Tex

    Apple calls it the Sudden Motion Sensor. Most modern laptops have a similar feature

    I vaguely remember there being a game that you could play, using the onboard motion sensors when the feature was first introduced.

    LiquidMac is pretty cool. It uses the SMS to simulate water in your display.

    LiquidMac at apple.com

    It impressed quite a few kids in my physics class. :D

    There's also MacSaber
    Pretty cool games...not best to play it during lectures though (It's easy to get carried away with them):)


    I'm sure there's others
