    When you place your Droid in the dock, the dock home screen automatically appears. I noticed recently that when I sit my Droid on top of my iHome (yes, I have an iPod), the dock home screen appears as if I had just placed it into my dock. For some reason or another, the iHome is forcing my Droid into dock mode. Any ideas as to why this happens? Also, can anyone reproduce this?

    There's a magnet triggering it.

    Thanks, Fabolous. I thought it was something to do with a magnet but wasn't sure.

    I'm pretty sure the newer iHome's use magnets to hold the iPod/Phone adapters in place.

    What would happen if you brought your phone near the super hadron collider? would it go into mega dock mode?

    Whatever you do, don't cross the streams.
