hmmmm I don't believe trackpads work off of any magnetism, but fluctuating electrical fields. I could very easily be incorrect though. That's interesting to hear though.

I'm not quite sure what this is, but it also happens when you place the phone near an iPod. Mine was near my friends ipod and the volume kept moving back and forth.
