    yeah seriously, ive used my work gloves which are rubbery, gardening gloves, and my winter running gloves with the touch screen crap you speak.
    Props to you then. I honestly cannot get those to work. Maybe you have the magic touch. I certainly don't think it's the norm. Look at video comparisons online. Haven't seen a single person successfully get touch response with gloved hands, let alone navigate the OS on an iPhone.

    Honestly, put a vid up on YouTube. People will be amazed. I guarantee it.

    For iPhone people complaining about a playful ad, I think you may want to look at Apple. They made it cool to make fun of MS.
    I remember this. And this was a time when I was an MS fan through and through. And you know what it did for me? It made me resent Apple for that, especially because most of their comparisons between Mac and PC were blatent lies. My favorite was the router that could "speak" the Macs language and "just work". Seriously. It's a router. I have never met a route that didn't just work when I plugged a windows machine into it...

    FWIW, apple has stopped those ads and focused their product all about them and their marketing team is great. they make the old look great and new and make you feel like you need it.
    The damage is already done.

    It's like spreading rumors about someone and getting everyone to believe them. Then stop after you've decimated their rep. I guess Apple deserves a cookie now.

    But competition is competition. I liked the Apple ads and laughed. They were good.

    I thought it was funny & cute :) especially the "you're holding it wrong!" tongue in cheek humor is great, always enjoyed the Droid iDon't/Droid does, Samsung's gsIII, Verizon's "there's a map for that," etc. commercials. Some people have no sense of humor! Lighten up.

    Regardless, we are trying to get people to adopt the brand, not pass it by as a joke.
