Is this a bug or it is just measuring gravity ?
I know nothing of accelerometers nor have I read datasheets, but
from http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Technical:Accelerometer_Fundamentals
it would seem detecting 1g in one axis is normal. If you rotate
the board 90 degrees does it read the same in another axis ?
