New notebook technology

According to CRN, IBM is adding a new technology to their Thinkpad line of notebook computers. Basically, a motion detector will lock down the hard drive to protect data in a crash.

Will this help out the flight attendants who tell us to turn off our notebooks during takeoff and landing? With this laptop, I can envision the pilot starting the takeoff run and all the Thinkpads on the jet simultaneously lock up.

Or if I’m in the middle of a flight that starts to go south, which will happen first, the deployment of the oxygen masks or the lock of the hard drive on the Thinkpad? Will anybody really care?
