Is it possible to manually extract and analyze the data from a personal accelerometer?

Recently, I've started hearing a lot about personal accelerometers such as the FitBit
and Philips' DirectLife
. Before I buy one of these, I'd love to know if there's a way for me to extract and analyze the data in these accelerometers without always using their associated web-sites (especially the $12/month web-site that Philips uses). Does anybody know whether this is possible and, if so, whether there is anything published about the process?
