    scientificamerican.com: Bar napkins may soon become obsolete as the medium of choice for scribbling down phone numbers now that a group of researchers is developing software that could turn a mobile phone into a mobile pen.

    Mobile phone makers have for the past several years built technology into their handsets that allow them to determine their angle with respect to the earth regardless of how they are tilted or turned. This is what lets smart phones such as the Blackberry Storm, HTC Touch Diamond, Apple iPhone and new Palm Pre provide a consistent screen display, regardless of whether the phone is held horizontally or vertically.
