Default Out of curiosity...

Would it be possible to reverse the headphone jack to be used a line in jack for recording? The thought just randomly came to me... heh.

When a random thought like that occurs it's a sign you've had too much, or you need to go to bed.

Nice idea. Maybe it is also possible to reverse the screen to be used as a camera.

maybe we can reverse the hyperspace engine to stop...wait what?

No though, I'm pretty sure that a 3.5mm input jack isn't the same as a 3.5 output jack, and I'm guessing a special chip would be needed anyway.

Yea that's what I figured.

If you're needing line input then the Cowon S9 can accomodate you with a cheap accessory cable.

Ah. I think I'll look for an S9, just to have around.

It's impossible! Reversing the hyperspace engines could cause the telerium crystals to implode on themselves thereby creating a black-hole in sub-space! It's madness Mr. Gebal, the engines just can't take that kind of pressure!

...ok...waaaayyyy to much star trek for me

But yeah, in all seriousness. Grade A impossible to mod a 3.5mm audio output jack to become a 3.5mm Line in.
