I noticed these iPhone sensitive gloves made by Echo at a few different shops on Smith Street last weekend. They’re super soft, comfortable gloves that come in a bunch of nice colors. The tips of the thumb and pointer fingers of each glove are made with a special fabric that allows you to use them on an iPhone’s sensitive touch screen. At first, I thought, “Wow! This is genius!” Naturally, there have been many times this fall/winter when I’ve been stuck on a street corner, desperately trying to figure out directions on Google Maps or check an address in an email with one thumb stuck awkwardly out of up my cheapo H&M gloves. Wouldn’t it be great to be able do this with my gloves still on? Maybe. Part of me wants to run out and get a pair, while the other part of me feels that it’s pretty scary that there are special clothes out there encouraging us to be that much more dependent on our cell phones.
