There ought to be a word for it

You know, that moment when you reach out and grasp your mobile ‘phone and draw it towards you on the table…

… and wonder why the mouse pointer isn’t moving.

Turns out there are some projects to let your mobile function as a remote input device but those are a bit like using the arrow keys. Anyone (Chris?) going to tell me about a project to detect small movements in your mobile and move the pointer?

But more than that, I want the word; in the spirit of The Meaning of Liff. What word can I use to say I’ve done it again, with the mobile and the mouse?
