How do you use an iPhone when it’s sub-zero outside? October 29, 2009

I love my iPhone. I love the ski resort where I live (Whistler in Canada).

But I’ve been wondering over the past couple of days, especially now the temperature has dropped and it’s started snowing,  how am I going to answer that phone when it rings and I’m, say, on a chair lift? With no exposed finger flesh to swipe to answer?

Looks like iLounge has been asking the same questions and has found a possible solution: Dots Gloves!

Dot glovesFor $15 – $20 you get an acrylic glove with special material at three of the fingertips so you can swoosh to answer that call or press to play that tune on your iPod as you’re skiing down the hill.

However, I’ve got my eye on the $25 sub-zero protection model with nylon shell and fleece lining. Apparently they’ve got drop-proof handling due to the ‘microfiber grip palm’. Here’s hoping…

Want a really easy drag and drop room planner?

Got one for you. I found this one on La Difference’s website and it’s created by (but icovia provide these planners for a number of clients so you may have come across it elsewhere).

Very easy to navigate, with a number of pre-built plans to pick from. You can also choose a blank plan and specify your own dimensions. Once you’ve chosen the room you want to remodel, simply drag and drop the relevant items from the left side panel, then resize, zoom and measure away… hours of fun.


WII Fit can (allegedly) be hazardous to your health June 13, 2008

So, my cousin, who’s only 28, just got a collapsed lung. Which is terrible. But also a little funny. Because it happened after a rather vigorous bout of WII fit hula hooping.

BTW, the video (below, courtesy of does not contain any footage of him!
