If you have an iPhone, you’ve discovered that the mute button doesn’t actually mute all sounds – and that’s annoying. To deal with iPhones and their inconsistent audio behavior, Ron Adair created the Mutator, a small plug that connects to the iPhone via the headphone jack. The Mutator assures that all of the sounds from all of the apps are silenced. The end.
There’s surely a hack for this, but the Mutator just looks so sleek and polished. If you don’t like dealing with turning off all of your app’s various sound controls, head over to Kickstarter to help fund this project.
