Getting the Digits: Gloves for Warmth and Touch Screens

We love a White Christmas as much as the next guy, but everything before and after is brutal. Snowfall, frigid temperatures and a stiffening wind have a way of dampening spirits, but productivity shouldn’t be affected. We’re talking about the important kind of productivity here: text messages, twitter, Angry Birds, the whole iNineyards. Even if you weren’t part of Snowpocalypse 2010 – or enduring a Chicago winter – you’re going to find yourself in need of quality gloves at some point. Fortunately, warm and fuzzy doesn’t have to mean disconnected. These pairs of technologically advanced glove options allow you operate your all-important mobile devices if and when you decide to brave the cold.
