iPod Fix
While most people would simply throw away an out-of-warranty iPod with a broken play/pause button, Craig gave his a new lease on life by attaching a custom-hacked dock connector. Inside the connector, he stuffed an ATtiny 13 microcontroller with a few other passive components. Now when he pushes the button on the connector, the ATtiny sends the appropriate serial command to the iPod to start or stop the music. Nice hack, Craig! [via Hack a Day]
