Yeah.. I was using the accelerometer in my example to tell the program 
what the phone orientation was so that you could limit distance without 
having to touch the interface.  If you had it set up to run from a free 
external button, you could push it
And orient the phone and point and the phone could vibrate a little when 
it found the answer.  Then you can look at the face to see what it was.
