Fingerless Texting Gloves


Wrote Edward C. Baig in yesterday's USA Today:


New gloves from the start-up Freehands are designed to help you text, e-mail and play games in cold weather this winter without giving in to the elements.

The tips of your thumbs and index fingers are the only digits exposed when you flip off the caps of those glove fingers. The caps fold back and adhere to the rest of the glove via Velcro.

Designer Josh Rubin, also founder of art blog Cool Hunting, says the idea came to him in 2007 when he tried answering an iPhone with his nose rather than removing his gloves.



$18 to $70.

There are 3 kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and 3G coverage maps


That's the only possible conclusion to be drawn from the war of the wireless titans currently being waged in TV commercials and the courtroom by Verizon and AT&T.

Long story short: Verizon says the map up top is the way it is and AT&T says you're lying, it's like this:


All I know is when I go into town my AT&T wireless phone calls always drop out in a dead zone at the intersection of Barracks Road and Georgetown Road — about a mile from an AT&T store.
