    that would be cool. i have one question about the vid, why does it move when you tilt it. i didnt think macs had accelarometers.

    Mac laptops have something called sms (sudden motion sensors) which is a feature to protect the harddrive if the computer is dropped, but many developers have created applications that use this feature.

    it works kind of like the accelerometer but i dont think it is the same thing.

    It wont do any harm to your mac and you can exit it from my understanding
    it was infact created by some design artist. But it is a virus in the sence that it installs totally undetected once you insert a usb stick
