In response to the previous question, it should work fine with any computer with built in motion sensors. Please test it out and contact me if there are any incompatibilities. Thanks, -Shaun

BumpAlarm, requires Amit Singh's amstracker utility, available here. Save it to a convenient place on your hard drive. When you first open BumpAlarm it will ask you to locate it. If you don't have one of the new Powerbooks with the motions sensors in them, AMStracker will simulate it using your primary input device (mouse). Pretty cool!
