For example, using the smart phone as a TV remote control and use the phone's ambient light sensor to control the contrast/light level on the TV.

I'm not at all against finding new use cases  quite the contrary  but this one feels a bit far fetched :) I don't think I'd want the TV's contrast to change whenever my phone's moved around or someone walks next to it!
