    Default MMi at Macworld: Freehands Gloves Letís You Use Your iOS Device in the Cold


    Some of you might remember the reports of people using sausages as styluses to operate iPhones in the cold. I for one canít imagine doing this, but I guess it works for some people. Well now you donít have to get your iDevices all greasy with pork products anymore. Freehands has you covered in cold. They offer a full line of fashionable gloves that let you use your portable gear in cold weather. They have styles for men and women and a few unisex gloves as well.

    Most Freehands gloves have finger caps that can be folded back to expose your index finger and thumb. For those times when you donít want to expose any fingers at all, Freehands has the Power Stretch 2 and 5 finger gloves. They feature ďa silicone screen palm and of course conductive polyamide tips with silver plating to conduct electric energy from your fingers.Ē Prices range from $18 for fleece glove, up to $80 for cashmere ones. Most, however are priced in the $20 range.

    So if you're going to be out in the cold with your iPad, go grab yourself a pair of Freehands gloves and leave the sausages on the breakfast table where they belong.

    So those doesn't have holes for the fingers but still works? Because from the picture they look like they are all in one piece

    I use these and I'm probably going to get an extra few pairs in case I loose them. They're that good.

    Because I know they aren't going to make protective motorcycle gloves which are vented (not intended to insulate), I just want some tips to pin onto my normal gloves. Can't they make something like that?

    I had a pair of Alpine Stars that worked with the iPhone. They were mesh material with leather palms.
