Jeeze, I thought the article would be about water-cooling for power tools, heavy stuff in well-ventilated environments, or something, but it starts right in talking about phones!

Great, yeah, I really want a sweaty phone in my pocket.

Besides, mammals don't only sweat, to regulate body temperature; the vast majority of them express excess heat by changing their breathing patterns -- so why not use something that gets rid of excess heat by increasing air convection, like, I dunno, a fan, or something?

Creating conduction patterns, so that heat could be "guided" out through earphone sockets, or other highly conductive elements on a phone's exterior, would be a trivial design matter -- if phones still had earphone sockets, that is.  Guiding heat out through a charging port would be as ill-advised as letting the phone sweat all over the charging port.

But the best way to keep your phone cool is by not playing games on it for five minutes, ya lazy buggers!  Put the damned things down and get some work done!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
