Reasons to hack, or "root," your Android handset: Custom OS upgrades, PC tethering, full-phone SD backups. Reason not to: It's really scary. At least it was, until now.
Gadgets stands are usually begrudging buys: If your gadget needs a stand, it probably should've come with one; if it could just sorta use one, it's hard to justify the cost. The solution? Make your own damn stand, for nothing.
