How to control iTunes with headphones

April 28, 2010

If you own headphones with a built-in remote, such as those that come with the iPhone (or these), you can control iTunes directly from the button when it’s plugged into your Apple laptop.

To launch iTunes, press the button once.

To play/pause, press the button once.

To skip to the next track, press the button twice.

To go back to the previous track, press the button three times.

Amazing, I know.

I have these by Etymotic, and they are fawesome.

The USB Nail Care System, from the geniuses at Thanko, is a modern breakthrough for nail care technology. This is great for the nail-obsessed women (and some men, but not me) who sit in front of a computer all day. The package comes with 6 different attachments to help shape, polish, and smooth your nails. It even has a cuticle pusher to push back those damn pesky cuticles.
