The Turbo Auto Alarm. From Joel’s Gizmodo bit-bag comes a rather cool bit of tech. Basically a bolt-in accelerometer for mobile phones which turns your handset into a rather effective car alarm. Car moves, phone jiggles, phone sends message to you. Cheap and cheerful at $79.00, eh? Especially since you can use an old unwanted handset. Recycle is good!

  • I can’t seem to tell for sure, but doesn’t this mean you have to have a phone that has service? In other words, I would have to pay for service on my otherwise “abandoned” phone, just so it could sit there 99.9% unused?

    Yeah, but all you need to do is stick in a ‘pay as you go’ SIM with no monthly rental and off you go. :-)
