    I'm sorry, but to use that kind of an app is plain stupid. Watch, it will break, Apple wont service it, and you'll bitch and moan on here.

    Does anyone know why apple even puts accelerometers in their laptops?

    Or do these kind of things just use the sudden motion sensor?

    so they can park the HD heads so they won't crash when the laptop gets dropped.

    That would go to the sudden motion sensor, not an accelerometer. Are they one in the same? :confused:

    I guess what im asking is, is there an accelerometer known as the SMS alongside another accelerometer? I know the SMS is one, I'm just wondering if that one is solely dedicated to its task while there is another one for some reason?

    No, apps like Smackbook and Seismac just use the SMS. Apparently, it provides enough info for that kind of thing.

    (Seismac will make your machine a seismometer, if you wanted one of those)

    Wow. I can't believe people actually want to trigger the SMS when it's original intent was to prevent damage.

    There are a lot of stupid people out there who don't understand what common sense is... It's almost like common sense should be a fantasy superpower...

    Wait... I think there this was brought up before...

    :D

    And like I said before, once they break it, they will be mad at Apple for not fixing it...

    Hmmm.... smacking your MacBook? Perhaps a stress-ball would be more useful.... :D

    Seriously, I can't condone smacking a laptop deliberately. **shudder**

    Mind you, I had fun waving my iBook around with MacSaber to demonstrate the Sudden Motion Sensor to customers. Not sure if it works with later machines.

    :rolleyes:

    Yea it works on the new 2009 macbook pros, so does liquidmac, and so does ispazz. i've only tried shadowbook once, but haven't really looked into it. I probably can get it to work. I'll try over Christmas break I have finals this week but i'm making the video for smackbook right now.

    how to make a smackbook

    HOW TO MAKE A SMACKBOOK ON SNOW LEOPARD

    make a new folder on the desktop called smackbook

    open up spaces preferences make sure that under "To switch between spaces" is set to ^ Arrow Keys

    download the AMStracker from http://osxbook.com/software/sms/amstracker/

    then download this: http://macbound.com/downloads/smackleopard.command.zip

    put both the AMStracker and the first thing you downloaded into the folder that you made earlier

    open that folder and right click on the item called smackleopard.command
    open it with text edit

    scroll down to the bottom of it and look for where it says:
    if(abs($x) > 30 && $stable > 30) {
    $stable = 0;
    change the 30's to 25's
    press file save

    open terminal
    type: cd /Users/username/Desktop/smackbook
    press enter ^your username not the word "username"

    terminal should now read: eng022:smackbook
    type in: chmod +x smackleopard.command
    press enter

    terminal should now read: eng022:smackbook
    type in: ./smackleopard.command
    press enter

    you now have a smackbook

    optional: if you would like to use hyperspaces, it is possible.

    download hyperspaces from http://thecocoabots.com/hyperspaces/
    (You can download the trial which has unlimited uses or the upgraded version it doesn't matter)

    open hyperspaces

    go to hyperspace preferences

    change your switch to next space setting to control right arrow
    change your switch to previous space setting to control left arrow
    you can change the number of windows to whatever number you would like i use 2 windows

    Enjoy.

    I wrote some applescript programs to make this easy

    Check this out…after tweaking for a while i was able to make an executable file that runs the smackbook as a shell script…so it runs behind the scenes…and also an app to stop it..check it out…no terminal needed or anything, just drag to applications and run
