    Anyone confirm this?

    I have an iMac 27" 2.8 i7. I have a FW800 cord connected for my portable HD. If I touch the end of the FW800 connector or sometime even just moving the cord without touching the connector (which I figure it's shifting in the back port creating "shorts" in the signal) it launches iTunes in the background.

    Thinking I've been adducted by Apple and implanted with some experimental bio iPod. It's fun to fool coworkers that I can connect and interface with iTunes with my finger. They think I'm a fricken cyborg from the future sent back to buy lots of Apple products and eventually will be triggered to eliminate coworkers with PCs or Macs older than 5 years...
    :cool: iTerminator.
    Apparently, I've been assimilated. I am Borg. :eek:

    Anyway, just a strange thing that a FW short would launch iTunes. Anyone else?

    I'm wondering if it goes beyond this model iMac too. I haven't seen it happen on my uMBP at home, but I don't leave a FW800 core hooked-up either.

    The really odd thing is iTunes just launched itself without me even touching anything, as I was backed-away from my desk talking to someone and it launched on it's own. I've rebooted and this issue is still there.
