Review of Homebrew Cellphones

This is a piece about a geek subculture. It's really well done; sound rich, lots of different voices, and great detail that gives substance without weighing the piece down. I truly connected with the group when the reporter noted that one of the engineers calls his customized phone the "Squeaky MoFo". I also loved the detail that they use a 3D printer to make the phone cases. Clearly not your average bunch of tinkerers!
