What the iPhone earbuds don\’t do

when plugged into my MacBook:

  • pause/play iTunes,
  • accept/close voice chats, and
  • work as a microphone at all.

Also the A/V 1/8\”->RCA cable that I got for my old iPod and iBook doesn\’t transmit video when plugged into the MacBook. It also doesn\’t even plug into the iPhone. It was one of my favorite accessories, but now the yellow plug just dangles uselessly as a reminder of what once was.

Apple\’s overall impressive level of integration and convergence just makes their misses all the more glaring.
