    Just wondering if anyone else has accidentally found a cool feature...

    I was on the bus jamming to some tunes when I picked up my Droid to check my e-mail. I accidentally knocked the headphone out. Rather than blaring my music through the speaker and annoying everyone on the bus the Droid just paused my song. I don't know who wrote that line of code but you ROCK!

    Yea, iPod's have had that feature for a while...but it is a nice addition to the Droid. I was actually surprised it did that, and I believe it pauses Pandora as well.

    Uh...IPods have speakers??? First I am hearing of this. I think the original poster was happy that the music wasn't sent blaring through the speaker, not so much that it was paused.

    Well it was not an accident that I found it, but when using the speech search, you can use say "navigate to" and then a store, and goggle nav will navigate to that store.

    Actually the iPod Touch 2g and 3g do have speakers. And yes, they pause when you remove your headphones.

    the feature was to "pause" when headphones are removed, i never said anything about speakers.


    but it's okay, you can still rag on me :)

    In the browser, if you hold down the back button you get a list of the last sites you visited. Like pulling up your history I guess, that was a nice feature..

    There was a time when I removed the plug and music did blare through the speakers.

    I think that was when I had an incoming call (which paused the music), then I removed the headphone plug to use the phone like a normal person (you can use the headphone to listen during a call though). After the call ended, it resumed the music through the speaker. That's how I recall it anyway.

    Otherwise it's a nice feature, even the ipod mini had it (but not my nano 3g).

    The Ipod Touch has a crappy built-in speaker and I think it is the first IPOD to have one - not counting the iPhone - maybe I am mistaken???
