iPhone 101: Triple click to go to a previous song

When Apple first introduced the iPhone, they also announced a new set of earbuds to go along with it. These headphones sport a nice clicky button that allows you to pause/play/skip a song. However, they forgot to include a function to go to a previous song.

If you are running the new 2.1 firmware, you are now able to triple-click the friendly button on your headphones to go to a previous song.

We here at TUAW understand that the feat of creating a single button that serves four purposes is not an easy one. Therefore, join us in giving Apple a quick, but much needed round of applause for finally adding this feature.
