8 cool smartphone hacks and custom mods
To the great majority of smartphone users, personalizing a smartphone translates to changing its wallpaper, placing a widget or two on its screen, and maybe equipping it with a flashy case or bumper. Others are into flashing custom software, thus teaching their phones tricks they weren't originally supposed to do. Then there's the kind of folks who come up with cool hack and mod ideas – folks who don't mind rolling up their sleeves and getting dirty for the sake of repurposing their gadgets or giving them a unique look. And probably voiding the device's warranty along the way. This post is dedicated to the latter group of people, as you've surely figured out by its title.

They want to attract more views and comments. More people comment the more $$$ they make.

Not in my views. They told us to how to put AdBlock in our browsers. Since then, I saw PA in a whole new way.

I don't think you really understand how this works. There are two type of online advertisement models. 1. When you earn money for every click by a user. Google operates under this model. So for e.g. if someone clicks on your company ad from google search then google earns money. 2. This one doesn't earn money on every click but ads are placed based on the popularity and visits on the site. If there are 10,000 visitors the ad revenue would be less a site with 20,000 visitors a day. So PA, wants you to visit the page often and comment on it so the traffic increases and they earn more from ads. This is the same model Youtube works under. The more unique subscribers you have the more the more revenue you get from ads irrespective of someone clicking that ad or not.

Level III hard anodizing would be awesome on an aluminum bodied phone like the HTC One or iPhones. Flashlights, knife handles, gun accessories, and other "tactical" gear, bike parts, etc made from aluminum gets hard anodizing. Why not a cell phone?
