Serves me right for making fun of them.

Remember when I posted this picture and made fun of it by saying:

"And this made me laugh. A glove that lets you have two fingers free? Is that for counting your money in the cold? Or picking up cheerios?"

WELL. You're not going to believe this, but there is a very good reason for making a glove that lets you bare your thumb and index fingers. It is yet another invention of our increasingly technology-savvy day.

These gloves are designed to enable you to use your blackberry

or iPhone

while you have gloves on. Isn't that amazing? I mean, really, who thinks of these things?

Probably some teenager in Norway.

They also make Dots Gloves,


which have metal dots on the fingertips so you can use them on touchscreen devices.

And I'm still having trouble transferring pictures from the camera to the computer. I live under a technological rock.

Be thankful ~

I think I need a pair of those gloves so that I can sustain my Crackberry habit in the cold weather.

I actually cut the thumb and index fingertips off my gloves last year. It made it easier to pack orders and operate the laptop pad at work with gloves on:)

I think that would be great for lots of things... but we'd never use those gloves here in Houston. We don't even own winter coats!
