Undocumented MacBook Pro feature of the day: Headphone jack works with iPhone headphones

I plugged in my iPhone headphones to my laptop, which has the little microphone/click button that lets you skip songs, pause the iPod or answer a call. Well I was watching a DVD rip, squeezed the button, and it paused it. Gasp. The headphone jack is a four-conductor jack like on the iPhone.

And the microphone works too. That explains why Diana could actually hear me while doing the Skype the other day.

If you get headphones with the volume controls as well, they also work.
