Laptops for earthquakes

This project seems to be gaining speed, and may overtake Twitter as an instant earthquake locater. The accelerometers are getting cheaper, and better, so this can only improve in time. They should have cheap USB ones to put on the floor slab, which is better than a wobbly desk, but this would never have the volume production of laptops, and a chip placed on the motherboard.
