The device signals when it is dropped

When the accelerometer detects that the device is in freefall, it generates the sound of a bloodcurling scream.

And maybe says "ouch" if there is a subsequent large impact. Possibly also keeps murmuring "I'm over here!" if it detects that no one is picking it up. (And "Thanks" when it does get picked up.)

That also brings up the interesting screen-lock method of throwing it up in the air.

Problems

Continual use of accelerometer hardware. Could be embarrassing.
