These are rather loose and oft misused terms, but a brick is just that and does nothing at all. The term is very catchy though, and is misapplied to any phone that won't boot properly. Therefore, the term "soft brick" has become a popular and somewhat more accurate word for those phones that can't boot but can be recovered via some method, usually flashing an SBF, although there are a variety of circumstance that will cause this and a variety of recovery methods.

No. I had the phone for about 10 hours; stopped at a store with a friend and left the phone on his center console. One of us knocked it into the open iced coffee container, where it sat for about 5 minutes.
I tried heroic measures (rice, disassembled it and circuit board cleaning), but no dice. Guy who bought it knows all this and STILL bought it.
I had another available upgrade, so I used it for an additional Bionic...all told the thing still only cost me $150 (250 + 250 - 175 for bionic and -175 for Droid X on eBay).
Now I can't upgrade to the Prime (and give the Bionic to my wife) as soon as it comes out; have to wait until December which isn't too bad.
Has anyone found a setting or hack to change the Web Browser from Mobile View to Desktop view? I'm really getting annoyed by going to web sites, and having them shown their stupid mobile phone version instead of the full HTML site. On some sites, there may be a link that says desktop or classic view, but not all. Maybe it could be done with a seem edit?
