I'll miss your warm glow

In my previous post, I generally praised Digits, which you attach to the tips of your glove fingers so you can work the touchscreen of an iPhone or similar device in cold weather. I did note that I had a problem making the iPhone camera respond to my gloved fingertips. After I wrote about that, I later had the same problem using my bare fingers. I switched my iPhone off, then back on, and everything worked fine. So Digits, which are offered by “social-product” developer Quirky for $13.99, are good for anything you need to do on a touchscreen when the temps get bone-chilling.

Also, you can follow me @warpafx on Twitter. I tweet frequently everyday on tech, funny memes, weird news, WikiLeaks and international news, and life in Philly because I live here. You can see the latest from my Twitter feed in the top right corner of this page.

The photo above shows a Compaq computer monitor, manufactured in 1997, disconnected after 13 glorious years in my employer’s office. We are finally getting LCD flatscreen monitors. Fancy us!
