No, no gadgets.

Small calculator is okay, no GPS, Internet or other electronic devices...

My guess is that they are too tired to need entertaining. If they are good, they are spending every available second on researching flights, destinations and maintaining some sort of journal to help them with a memory task, if any!

A calculator is not entertainment.

They keep themselves entertained by being on the greatest show on television. If that's not entertainment enough for them, they shouldn't be there.

An iPod can be connected to WiFi, which would then serve as a function of an iPhone if Apps like Skype, Viper are downloaded.

Which will help them connect to their friends and family...

End of story.

I don't think so.

I've always wished teams were allowed to bring cameras to take pictures.

Lol, if I were on the Race and I had my camera, I'd be like taking pictures of all the planes at the airport.  :)

Random related question: Are racers allowed to go online and access their emails and social networking sites and write non-race related info? Or are they strictly banned from doing so?

Yes.

Ooh, I just saw a video on TMZ.

Phil said that he was detained because he didn't have the right papers in immigration.  :cmas18

It is my understanding that there was an ISSUE with the papers...something expired perhaps? There are several articles on this online.

What happened to that website where we could find really detailed results/progress of each team/leg? (Who finished the Roadblock first, in which order teams arrived to the route info...) It had I think seasons 5/6 to the current season (when I lost track of that website). I always found that site to be really interesting... :cmas5

I'm wondering about this situation: in one elimination leg Team A successfully checked in while Team B was the last to arrive and thus got eliminated. But in the following 12-hour rest one member of Team A got badly injured and couldn't race for the next leg. In this case, would Team B return to the race and if they could, do they need to face a speed bump?

Super Tux, the way I understand it, once you're eliminated that's it; you can't come back in.

If the second team can get sufficient medical attention, no matter how far behind they are, they aren't eliminated unless they become the last team that hasn't checked in at an eliminationpoint, at which point Phil will either come to them, or rhey will get to the pit stop and be eliminated.
Bottom line no switching teams.
