Hacking with Nat Friedman
"Want to see a really cool hack?" Nat Friedman asks me. He flips his IBM X60 Thinkpad onto its side and the image on the screen turns horizontal. Then he drops to the command line, changes some esoteric settings, goes back into Gnome, and tilts his machine. The foreground window starts sliding in the direction he tilts it. He changes the angle and the window responds, sliding up, down, left and right as he spins and turns his laptop.
