Sounds nifty! In addition, Apple has also filed for a patent for self-cleansing audio jacks:

Man i love hearing about this stuff... good things good things...
This patent will not be granted. Its far too obvious.
Even lowly Honda Accord has an ambient noise sensor to manage the radio volume, compensating for road noise. There is nothing new here. This technology has been in many electronic gadgets for years, including high end TV.
Some high-end restaurants use this technology backwards, to turn DOWN the music, when the noise of patron chatter becomes so loud you no longer hear or need music to elevator music to cover conversations.
You can't take common technology from one machine and apply it in another a machine and obtain a patent. Those days are over.
I hate all ambient sensors, anyway (especially for lighting). I'm constantly readjusting everything. I want everything cranked up to 11 all the time and just left alone.
( Well, it's one louder, isn't it? :lol: )

Our renters moved out a few months ago and left us having a mess to clean up. Not only had been there holes within the wall, they also destroyed doors, window frames and carpets. They had been really smart and covered up the harm with pictures, posters and curtains so we didn't realize the extent in the harm until they have been gone. Now we're fixing up the house so we can rent it again. Thankfully, this employment is a lot easier as we have a laptop with wireless capabilities. We're capable to Watch FlashForward Online. as well as other exhibits so we're entertained when toiling away. It's great that the World wide web offers points of this nature.

My husband travels to get a living. Additional times than he would care to count, his organization has booked him into a hotel which doesn't offer cable Tv. Last year, while surfing the web, he came across a site the allows him to Watch FlashForward Online. Now he has something to do on those nights when he is bored. This makes me really happy as there had been nights when he would go out searching for something to complete. He would often spend a lot more out about the town than he had made that day. His employment is to bring capital in, not spend extra than he makes.
