So I'm working on my MacBook Pro and listening to music with my iPhone headphones connected to the computer. I take a break and happen to look down and see the buttons on the headphone and begin to wonder if they will control iTunes on my MacBook. I decide to give it a try and son of a gun, they work. The upper and lower buttons control the volume. One click of the middle button paused the music. Two clicks and I was listening to the next song. Three clicks and I was back to the previous song.
I thought I had made the discovery of the year. I was ready to go online and spread the word and show the world my genius. I was ready for the accolades to start coming in. Fame was mine!
It turns out that I'm not the first. I did a little research before I made a fool of myself. Someone else had discovered this. Apparently the microphone also works.
Anyway, I thought that if I didn't know this there might be others out there that could use this information.
Please tell me I wasn't the only one out there who was clueless.
