<br>><br>> Agreed - fascinating possibilities! FYI, the Motorola L2 phone has a light<br>> sensor (it toggles the keypad light), so it's been done already, but - of<br>> course - the closed software on that phone doesn't fully utilize it...
<br><br>I'm assuming that acquiring/monitoring the microphone input doesn't come<br>for free.. but ambient noise level could also be used as an indicator of<br>activity - either polling for one second every minute or so, or (if the

<br>else it might pick up car headlights swinging across the window, a<br>neighbours security light being triggered by raccoons, etc.<br><br>Oh wait, that wouldn't work... if you had the phone in the bedroom it<br>would allow incoming calls if you were snoring.
