Ideas for enhancing smartphone audio recording for live events

RecordingFilter: I got the idea of using my new Android phone to make a live recording. I just used the Voice Recorder app that came on the phone. The resulting recording is obviously pretty low quality, but not completely terrible. How can I find ways to make future smartphone recordings sound better? [more inside]

Looking for gloves that are warm and work with the iphone/ipod.

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?

Credo/Sprint in Los Angeles?

So, Credo, which uses the Sprint network, finally has a smartphone that apparently doesn't suck (the HTC Hero). I'm very tempted to switch over from Verizon, especially since the latter tends to drop calls when I'm sitting in my living room. But I don't want to go from the frying pan into the fire, so to speak. Can any LA Mefites give me your opinion of Sprint's coverage, especially in the Echo Park/Silverlake/Los Feliz area? More generally, if anyone has experience with Credo's customer service, I'd appreciate hearing from you too. I want to support good causes, but I don't want to drive myself crazy in the process.
