Accelerometer and gyroscope are two different things. Speeking of the compass/accelerometer, anybody playing with those night-sky-planitarium apps? Really very cool. Just hold your iPad up to identify what is beyond it. Lot of fun if you live in an area with good visibility and low light pollution. Gyroscope definitely could be used in aviation to emulate some of the flight instruments.
ok... does anyone know what a gyroscope is? cause It seems to me you won't ever have one of those in a mobile device unless it's specifically designed for aviation.
alright, either a link or someone tell me what a gyroscope is. because I do not see it's implications nor do I see the possibility of a gyroscope fit into a phone or iPad.
the iphone 4 now seems even more attractive to me, but I might not have the spare to afford it when it comes out, dammm
