SIGNIFICANTLY COLD WEATHER blankets Ireland and I've got the gloves to make it through the most bitter conditions.
The problem is with my touchscreen phones. I can't get the little devices to respond to simple things like answering a phone call unless I wear touchscreen gloves from Debenhams. I can't get my newest phones--even the ones made by engineers in the arctic conditions near Helsinki--to work while wearing my time-worn leather gloves. They don’t conduct electricity. And my fingers don't work well when frozen. So I'm looking at soft, 100% acrylic gloves with special conductive material woven into the thumb, index and middle fingers, so I can tap, pinch and scroll when white stuff is landing on my screens. I'm posting a photo on my blog because my wife looks at my pages on the run-up to Christmas, hoping to find inexpensive gifts for me. To solve my touchscreen issue, I'd like either a pair of special gloves or another Nokia N8 earbud assembly because I'm able to use the earbuds to answer phone calls and toggle through audio playlists.
Amazon has nice pink-festooned touchscreen gloves. I like Freehands Gloves costing $20 a pair. Firebox Gloves cost $26 a pair. Tavo Gloves cost $29 a pair.
