Stupid Mac Tricks: Make iPod Earbuds Stick to a MacBook Pro
Here’s a stupid Mac trick: grab your iPhone/iPod earbuds and place them about an inch inward on the corners of a MacBook Pro… they’ll stick. Much like the iPad 2 and it’s Smart Cover, the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and MacBook all have magnets in the upper lid to keep it shut.
I just tested this out with a metal pen and a small screwdriver and the magnets held them too. Useful? Not really, but it’s fun. This also makes a decent prank to play on someone if you let your imagination run wild, although it’s not as heart-stopping as a fake kernel panic.
Thanks for sending this in Peter!
