Freehands, iPhone Gloves

Freehand_2

These black leather or stretch gloves with flick-back fingers called Freehands let you “stay warm and keep in touch.” The fingertips stay back with magnets, a handy feature. $40 for the leather version, $20 for fleece. Bike messenger-techno-geek chic.

  2. magnets and hardrives??

  3. Hmmm…
    Call me paranoid, but I would be a bit worried about having ten magnets in close vicinity to any kind of electronic device, even if they are hidden. Anything could happen.
    It could also be interesting if you have to take a credit card or debit card out of your wallet.
    Sometimes logic has to trump design.
    Besides, the same idea has been around for a while with velcro.

  4. DItto with the magnets. A friend of mine set her iPhone next to some refrigerator magnets on the counter and they totally killed it.

  5. I also agree with the magnets comments. Especially as other solutions, such as the north face etip, or the tevo brand gloves works quite well.

    A quick review of the North Face Etip glove can be found here:

  6. Hi folks. Just thought I’d pass along a free pattern for simply-knit iPhone Mitts. A mitten designed to make it easy to use your tech, and for knitting freaks to use the many gorgeous sock yarns in the world. It’s a practical mitt, well tested in this already-long Michigan winter…

  8. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Thanks a lot
