People?! Helllllo?!?

Look, I've been reading macrumors long enough to know that you all are going to think this is awesome. Are you just not reading the slashdot article? Is my title bad?

Look, people have figured out how to use the motion sensor to:

1. change a song in itunes when you rock your laptop
2. keep a window level w/ the ground when you tilt your laptop
3. use it for scrolling into and out of a map
4. and other stuff in games
5. anything!

guys, check this out!
