What goes on during the smartphone assembly process?

What goes on during the smartphone assembly process? A lot of it is opaque. Does anyone have insight about what happens from the time the phone's components enter the factory until the time it leaves in end-user packaging? [more inside]

What's the most "geek-friendly" phone on the market today?

I'm looking for a smartphone that's hackable and moddable, but I'm a lazy geek so I'm really looking for something that has a strong and independent development community that's already done most of the hacking and modding for me. What's the best phone for me?

Help keep my phone safe on bike rides.

I'd like to take my smartphone (HTC Hero) with me when I'm cycling and use it as a trip computer. Problem: I'm nervous that I'll be taking it home in pieces. Are there any smartphone bike mounts that will secure my Hero to the bike as well as protect it in the event that I crash?

How do I segue music tracks on a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone. I use it to listen to music. But the music player is set up to include a brief gap between each track. This is particularly a nuisance when I'm listening to albums with segued tracks (such as live albums). How can I set it up so there are no gaps between tracks?

Smartphone - call plan - data plan = PDA + WiFi?

I have a Samsung Captivate smartphone with a rate plan and data plan. If I were to cancel my AT&T contract (and pay the required fee, of course), could the phone continue to be used to access the Web via Wi-Fi to sync my Google calendar/contacts/e-mail, surf the Web, and run Web-enabled apps? Would I lose anything else besides telephone and 3G data capabilities?

I'm trying to buy some warm gloves that are designed to work with the iphone. In my internet search there seem to be several different brands that work in different ways but few reviews. These are going to be gifts and I need both a man's and a woman's glove and, since both recipients live in cold climates, I want ones where their fingers can stay covered while they operate their iphone. Can anyone point me to a review of these gloves or have any experience to share?
