I spend an inordinate of time driving. I often listen to podcasts while driving, so that I can learn something during that time. I use my iPhone's headphone connector to connect it to my car's stereo system.
Today, after arriving at a destination, I mistakenly disconnected my iPhone from the car stereo before pausing the podcast I was listening to. Much to my pleasant surprise, this automatically paused the podcast. The iPhone is apparently smart enough to pause the recording it is playing when the headphone connector becomes disconnected. I was impressed.
Nice touch, Cocoa Touch!
