Hobos and tough guys are no longer the only ones wearing fingerless gloves. If you are wondering what the ‘heck’ I am talking about let me share a few very interesting Facebook statistics with you.

Those are serious numbers, folks.
Now that the temperatures have dropped throughout many parts of the United States, people are heading out with a pair of gloves on their hands. If you are one of the growing number of people purchasing a touch screen mobile device like the iPhone or Droid, then you probably understand the frustration of ripping off your gloves each time you want to check your friends’ latest status updates or check into a new place on Facebook. Fingerless gloves are a great idea for those looking for a solution to this problem. I picked up a cheap pair this past weekend after temperatures dropped and the snow started falling. If you are looking to keep the tips of your fingers warm, there are styles available that offer mitten-like flaps that snap or button to the back of your hand when you need the touch of your skin for your mobile device.

I was surprised at the warmth these gloves still provided even with my fingers were exposed. Making a quick fist was one way to keep them warm and there are always the pockets in my jeans. If you still think they look silly, just think about how silly you look pulling a Michael Jackson when you’ve got one glove on and one glove off poking away at your cell…
