    It's a feature, not a bug. I don't think it is something that is "fixable" or even needs to be fixed. It is just a byproduct of the sensitivity of the accelerometer.

    The way I understand it, it is accessible by installed aps, therefore allowing this exploit, whereas things like the GPS, Time, ect.. need special permissions.

    I know they want to keep it open for game aps, as a lot of them use the accelerometer, but adding a permission (fairly simple as I understand it) would fix any perceived vulnerability (at least in this area, maybe...).
