iOS device headphones and your Mac System 10.7
Your iOS device's headphones with remote controls also start/pause/ffwd/volume change your Mac.

Plugging your iOS headphones (with remote control) into your Mac, the headphone remote functions will change volume, pause, fastfwd, rewind and track skip iTunes.

Tested on MacBook Pro mid-2010 with OS X 10.7.2

[crarko adds: This is an update to an earlier hint. I see in the comments of the previous hint that there are some Mac laptop models this didn't work on.]

The microphone also works. 30-pound iPhone, anyone? No reason not to work on a a MPro tower, either.

As Crarko writes, this doesn't work on some models. I'd say it doesn't work on most models, except for perhaps the latest ones. Also, this might be a Lion-only hint. No matter what I try, this doesn't work for me.

I have a Sennheiser PX 100-IIi with inline controls, and it works fine when I watch videos on my MacBook Air. It has the usual controls, play/pause and volume, and they all work.

Not a "Lion only" hint: it works for me on a MacPro with 10.6.8
Perfect with Skype
