Here’s a rather interesting hack where the user buys a new Android smartphone Droid and sees that he can no longer “dock” his Android phone on his iPhone/iPod speakers.  Well, I guess it’s not that hard as you can see in the above pinouts, a bit of hacking got his Droid working fine on his iPod speakers.

GoogleMaps working on Voice Search with Blackberries

Google is working on voice search functions with their GoogleMaps on Blackberries.  Now, this is really old news as I have covered Microsoft’s TellMe service which does exact same thing for more Blackberries except using Microsoft’s LIVE search and LIVE maps.
