Make your gloves iPhone friendly

iphone-gloveIf you’ve read some of my iPhone related reviews, you’ll know that I have a love / hate relationship with the phone. It mainly has to do with the fact that there are no call end and answer buttons on the phone. You have to use your finger, which isn’t a big deal during the warmer months, but it’s already getting chilly here in Indiana. Soon I’ll be busting out my fuzzy gloves for the morning drive to work. Ever try answer a phone call on your iPhone with a gloved hand? It no worky. There are gloves on the market that you can buy just for this reason. But why not convert a pair of your own? I saw this do-it-yourself article from Instructables this morning and thought it was a great idea. All of you craft geeks go check it out.

    They use silver coated thread that may scratch your iPhone screen.

    After having frost bite as a kid, I start wearing gloves pretty early in the season. I have learned the best way to quickly answer/end a call on my iphone is to just use my nose. Looks ridiculous, but it works.

    I have used my nose to answer an iPhone with gloves on.

    Shouldn’t you be keeping your hands on the steering wheel instead of answering your phone? 🙂

    In these situations, wouldn’t a bluetooth earpiece with a actual mechanical button be better anyways?
