    i placed my iphone on my trackpad of my ibook g4 and my mouse starting moving around. and i tried putting my finger on it and i couldnt control it whatsoever until i moved the phone. kinda freaky.

    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.
