Etre has introduced gloves for use with touch-screen devices, and they’re not finger-less, oh no – if you look at the image you’ll see they have two fingers (thumb and index), so you can keep the rest of your digits warm while tapping your digital device.
You got to give them a point for entrepreneurial zeal, I guess, “Etre Touchy gloves seek to fill the gap left between normal pairs of gloves and fingerless pairs of gloves. While normal pairs of gloves keep your hands warm and dry, they aren’t compatible with modern touch-screen devices, which only respond to skin-on-screen contact.”
“This week in a New York court attorney’s for EMI made the argument about why I should be personally liable as CEO of MP3tunes. They are suing not only MP3tunes, but also me personally and are going after my home, cars and kids college funds in their suit,” writes Michael Robertson, CEO of MP3tunes, a service which only enables users to stream tracks they own to other devices they have access too, not to file-share music. This begs the question – do labels and consumers need to hammer out a bill of fair use rights? Should labels block format transfers for personal use?
