    Hey all,

    I found this strange phenomenon when placing my Milestone (motorola droid) near my laptop. I've no idea if this has been witnessed before, so please don't flame. I believe this is caused by the magnetism of the hard-drive, which tricks the device into thinking it has been placed in a dock!

    Whats this good for? Well you can play with the dock software without having to download and install dockrunner. So, if your like me, and want to try it out before buying a dock this little bug is cool. It's probably dangerous for the phone though.

    Anyway, can this be exploited? Could you build your own dock with magnets or an hold hard-drive? Video here:
