Geoff McCormick, director of UK design firm The Alloy, breaks open an iPhone to explain the hardware and the hundreds of patents contained in a smartphone in the following 5-minute video:

Patent Wars: Stripping the iPhone bare

I loved all the smartphones (even those a few years back look ancient) and blueprints strewn across Geoff's desk, but be prepared to hit mute (get a cup of coffee) after you click on my link to avoid a 2-minute commercial which must be "consumed" to see the video.  Also later when I ran video again it complained I didn't have the latest version of Flash. Didn't Steve Jobs lead Adobe to kill that off?

Thanks to Alan Cooper for sending this article my way tonight!
