dear apple

When you designed the iPhone, did you think about us up here in the North, where it's so cold we can't take our gloves off to type on the touchscreen? You know what people do instead?
We use the tips of our noses.

Dignity may have been lost in the process, but what are the options, really?
after the iPhone, there's no going back.

  1. No, they didn't think of us. However, my nose takes quite good pictures. How about yours?

  4. Not only up north, even down south!
    I found this page but didn't try already.
    Anyway, somebody should produce conductive gloves.
