I have recently noticed a process running called "usbmuxd"
its user is "nobody", and while it does not gobble up any CPU time,
I am curious as to what this is.
Several online threads are starting to think its related with the iPhone,
suggesting it was installed withiTunes 7.3.

Anyone know anything about this process?

My google-assisted guess is it's related to iTunes 7.3:
According to Ask The Admin:
you update iTunes to 7.3, a PrivateFramework called MobileDevice.framework gets
installed in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks. Four applications are inside it,
aside from the library binary itself:,, reenumerate, and usbmuxd. These applications, from a
cursory analysis (i.e. strings :p), seem to have tons of debugging info left in
