I don't know if it's been stated here before but I just realized tonight that the microphone piece on the iPhone earphones is also a button that if you squeeze it once will pause the music. If you press it twice it skips to the next song/track! Pret-ty cool. Am I late to the game or did everybody already know this?! Heck, I didn't even know there was button to press on those things.

well, since you DID ask, -yes, you're late to the game on that one.. Doesn't matter though, it's still a cool feature and definitely worthy of mention..

Oh my.... your a little late to the party :) No biggie. It was mentioned long ago during the keynote. Also the orientation video shows it - and its in the manual.
